The trophy cabinet speaks for itself.

3 trophies. 13 gold.15 silver medals... the 2014 Taylors Heritage Label Shiraz is an impressive red from one of Australia's most famous family wineries.

More than just a showstopper, this champion Clare Valley Shiraz is such an attractive wine. It's so smooth, so ripe, so full of flavour. The 2014 vintage was moderate and even, helping to deliver a wine of infinite appeal.

With classic packaging that honours the history of the Taylors winery - celebrating its 50th anniversary this year - this special release Shiraz represents everything that makes Clare Valley reds great. A big wine, but not too heavy, helped along beautifully thanks to five years ageing.

How's it taste?

Classic Clare Shiraz with lifted blue/black fruit aromas, baking spices, and vanilla oak hints. The palate is full bodied and dark-fruited, with plum and blackberry notes, supported by a lovely tannin structure and a long, lingering finish.

How was it made?

The fruit was sourced from the Taylor family estate in the Clare Valley. Once harvested, the fruit was quickly transferred to the winery and de-stemmed. Primary fermentation was carried out in stainless steel fermenters then the grapes were pressed using a pneumatic bag press with all pressings returned to add weight and texture to the wine. The wine was then transferred to American oak barrels for secondary, malolactic fermentation. The wine was matured in American oak for 12 months followed by fining, minimal filtration & bottling.

Who made it?

Established in 1969, Taylors Wines represents a family history of great winemaking. Three generations have built on the legacy of dedicated winemaking in the Clare Valley, with a focus on respect for the vineyard and fruit, and particular care in the winery. The winery is headed up by third generation winemaker Mitchell Taylor, supported by Chief Winemaker Adam Eggins, and a group of highly skilled winemakers, who all work to ensure the consistent quality of the Taylors range.
