Introducing Gibson ‘Smokey Oak’ Shiraz

Introducing Gibson ‘Smokey Oak’ Shiraz

Grillers, smokers and low & slowers fire up – the ultimate wine pairing for your backyard barbecue creations is now available.

In partnership with Adelaide’s own Weber Grill Academy, we’re thrilled to release our limited-edition bottling of 2020 Gibson ‘Smokey Oak’ Barossa Shiraz. Limited to just 500 cases, this wine has been crafted with the assistance of Weber’s grill experts, to complement a wide range of barbecue foods.

Smokey Oak Shiraz combines several small parcels of fruit grown in the Northern Barossa. Individual barrels from the 2020 vintage that showed plush, generous fruit and toasty spice complexity were earmarked for the Smokey Oak Shiraz by winemakers Rob Gibson and Adam Fiegert. The final blend was selected by Weber Grill Academy’s Jacinda Gregg and Adam Mizzi, with an eye on complementing a range of flavours that can be developed “under the hood” of a barbecue.

“From seared to sizzled, smoked to slow-cooked, barbecue flavours were calling out for a purposefully crafted red wine to complement them”, said Jacinda Gregg. “Gibson’s generous Shiraz style was an obvious choice, and we’re sure grill enthusiasts will agree”, she added.

“We’re not just talking ribeye steaks and smoked lamb shoulders either – the Gibson Smokey Oak Shiraz is bright and balanced to pair equally well with something like miso roasted pumpkin, or spiced cauliflower served with labne”, added Adam Mizzi.

The 2020 Gibson Smokey Oak Shiraz is available for $30 per bottle, while stocks last!
