2020 McPherson Dont Tell Gary Victorian Shiraz

5 Stars Sam Kim
In stock
A great price for a highly awarded label which is a previous vintage scored #1 Shiraz and Best Buy in the recent Cuisine tasting, along with a bevy of other top scores and gold medals. From a premium Victorian producer, "Dont Tell Gary" is an intriguing reference to the wine's quality-for-value. Fruit from an old vine single-vineyard was secretly fermented in lots of new and "ridiculously expensive" French oak, and Gary is the name of the winery accountant who wasn't allowed to know about it. A remarkable wine for the price, the Dont Tell Gary is a steal!

Its Origins

"McPherson Wines is, by any standards, a substantial business. Its wines are largely produced for the export market, with enough sales in Australia to gain some measure of recognition here. Made at various locations from the estate vineyards and contract-grown grapes, they represent very good value. McPherson Wines is a joint venture between Andrew McPherson and Alister Purbrick (Tahbilk), both of whom have had a lifetime of experience in the industry. Quality is unfailingly good." — James Halliday

What The Critics Say

5 Stars and 93/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim (2019 vintage)

"Beautifully ripe and perfumed, the inviting bouquet shows Black Doris plum, blueberry, violet, olive and roasted nut aromas with a hint of pepper spice. It’s supple and succulent on the palate with rounded mouthfeel and silky tannins, making it soothing and comforting." Drink 2021 - 2029

4.5 Stars The Wine Writer, Angie Atkinson (2019 vintage)

"Deep ruby with a lovely purple hue. Deep, rich, and intense aromas of juicy blackberry, fresh boysenberry, sweet plum, and pepper with a hint of anise. The juicy dark fruit continues onto the palate and is joined by a soft, lifted acidity that freshens the palate and a soft tannin structure. Perfect for your next barbeque!"

Number 1 Shiraz in Cuisine Tasting 2020 (2018 vintage)

"This wine is all about allowing the fruit to sing and, boy, does it; this is a delicious example of a cooler-climate shiraz with floral blueberry and blackberry fruits and just a hint of pepper spice. The succulent berry and black-fruit characters flow on through to the palate with acidity and silky tannin polish supporting a luxe finish. Perfectly described by head judge Ben as a shiraz with poise, presence and personality."
