We're excited to introduce our very first Discovery Road Shiraz/Montepulciano blend. Although varieties of very different personalities, this wine brings two winemaking generations together. 

The 2021 Shiraz/Monte combines the stalwart variety of the Barossa with a Mediterranean newcomer, in what winemakers Rob Gibson and son-in-law Adam Fiegert are calling a “modern Barossa red of pure drinkability”. 

Rob recognised Montepulciano as a “climate change compensator” several years ago and sees it as a variety that can add aromatics and vibrance to Shiraz. This 2021 release delivers vibrant flavours of fresh blackberries, mulberries and black cherry.

Fittingly, the contrasting varieties mirror a similar dynamic within the family business of Gibson itself. 

“Adam and I laugh at how Shiraz/Monte pretty much sums us both up as people,” says Rob. “One is a veteran with decades of experience in the region, the other a charismatic import, showing much potential on home ground. Shiraz speaks to my personality, a bit more conservative, Monte is definitely like Adam - boisterous and of the next-gen”, he added. 

Tasting Notes

Deep crimson. Lifted red and black fruits are front and centre with layers of Italian herbs.The medium-weighted palate delivers flavours of fresh blackberries, mulberries and black cherry while delivering a long persistent finish of fine grainy tannin.
