Uncut: an organic Shiraz that is pure quality. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, all the character of Gemtree's premium fruit is packed into this inky, structured, vibrant McLaren Vale red. Year by year this wine is harmonious and complex — 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

93/100 The Real Review, Huon Hooke

"Dense, deep purple/red colour. Restrained bouquet of black fruits, a whisper of star anise. The palate is full-bodied and supple, loaded with soft ripe tannins and it all lingers long on the after-palate. A dense, full-throated, solid shiraz with masses of ripe tannins and big potential. 24 AUG 2019." Drink 2021 - 2034

Wine Enthusiast

"Ripe plums, baking cherries, earthy spices, violets and a good lick of chocolaty, vanillin oak all lead on this plush and powerful Shiraz. The palate is big but not overblown, a luscious layer of fruit cinched by raspy, textural tannins. Protein required."

94/100 Halliday's Wine Companion (2016 vintage)

"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.."
