'Uncut' means this organic Shiraz is pure quality. It is bottled unfined and unfiltered, so all the smells and flavours of Gemtree's premium organic fruit is packed into this dark, inky, structured, vibrant McLaren Vale red. Year by year this wine is harmonious and yummy -- in a mouth-filling, intense sort of way. It is naturally complex yet satisfying and rich, and that makes it a very serious glass of Shiraz for the price.

Its Origins

"Following a wine retail background going back to 1966, Paul and Jill Buttery established Gemtree Vineyards in 1980 when they purchased a vineyard on Tatachilla Road in the McLaren Vale. The grew the business releasing their own Gemtree label in 1998. Son Andrew Buttery now heads the company, and his sister Melissa and her husband Mike Brown look after the viticulture and winemaking. The company has made the commitment to sustainability, practising biodynamic farming and achieved Australian Certified Organic certification in 2011. Gemtree owns over 130 ha of vineyards across three main sites and makes a large range of wines over different tiers." Raymond Chan

What The Critics Say

Winemaker notes on current 2016 vintage

Nose: Cocoa powder, brown spices, red cherry, plum, boysenberry, mulberry, hints of vanilla and marshmallow. Palate: The 2016 Uncut is linear, multi-layered, seamless, bright and textural. It is a wine truly respectful of the vineyard sources. The palate flavours emulate the aroma descriptors of red fruits and spice with hints of cocoa. This wine is all class with all the elements in perfect balance.

94/100 Halliday's Wine companion

"Deeply coloured crimson; a medium-bodied shiraz that sings of its variety, place and vintage; the mouthfeel is supple, yet textured, the flavours of black cherry/berry fruits, the finish long. Great value. Drink at your leisure.."

92/100 Campell Mattinson

It’s pretty much always good buying/drinking, is Gemtree’s Uncut Shiraz. This 2016 is right in the groove. Rich, generous and alive with dark berried flavour. A mouthful of wine. Plums, red licorice, cloves and sweet spices, a gentle creaminess giving it all a soft feel. Just the ticket for a cold night, or for any night really.
