We are thrilled that New Zealand’s Cuisine Magazine has just awarded our 2016 Zip Line Shiraz 5 stars and ‘Best Buy’ as part of their July 2019 edition shiraz tasting.

Even more chuffed that we slid proudly into the judge’s top 5!  (out of 119 wines tasted mind you)  and here’s what they had to say:

“From the elevated and relatively cooler Eden Valley, this vibrant, ripe wine from 90 year old vines exudes blueberries and raspberries that intertwine beautifully with sweet vanilla oak. An elegant expression of shiraz with a generous structure and chalky tannins. Cellar with confidence for up to 4 years.”

Up against some other superb Aussie shirazes, we were the only Eden Valley shiraz to make it into the top 10, sitting amongst good company with 6 other Barossa Valley and 2 Clare Valley shirazes also gracing the list. This just goes to show that our wine growing regions here, collectively produce what is arguably the best shiraz out there.

We will continue to wave the Barossa flag with pride from our Queenstown base over in NZ and this ski season the award winning 2016 Zip Line will be our number one choice for aprés ski!


This wine was also awarded a silver medal at the 2018 Melbourne International Wine Show late last year.

Don’t miss out – the time to stock up on this beautiful 2016 vintage is now. Soon it will only be available to our wine club members, once our 2017 Zip Line Shiraz is released to the public later this month:  buy 2016 Zip Line Shiraz now
