Buyer Dan Parrott has a knack for finding an exceptional wine in a forgotten corner of a cellar, then negotiating a great price for the lot. That’s how we bagged the Barossa’s mighty Patronus Shiraz for you at a price we knew you'd really welcome!

Online Review For the 2016 vintage
Patronus is a beautifully smooth, complex example of the Barossa’s prized Shiraz, crafted by one of the region’s oldest winemaking families. When we initially featured their luscious Grenache Shiraz Mataro, it flew from our cellars. So when our Buyer got wind of a special single vineyard Shiraz from the same tip-top source, he was on to it like a shot. Shiraz is very much the hero of Australia’s Barossa Valley. Aussie winemaking legend Peter Lehmann once said “When God created Shiraz, he did so with the Barossa in mind.” Patronus comes from a plot of old vines where the amount of fruit is miserly but the quality is heavenly. The beautifully rounded 2017 has ripe black fruit with a rich wrap of oak. Enjoy with grilled steak or lamb kebabs.
