    An Irishman, a monkey, a stallion and a peacock hopped off a ship from India. No it’s not the start of a bad joke, it’s the true story behind Gleeson & Co Shiraz – the latest release from Clare Valley producer Kirrihill.

    Named Gleeson after Edward B Gleeson. AKA Paddy Gleeson. AKA The King of Clare. Paddy was an Irishman who made his fortune in Calcutta before making the move to south Australia (with his entourage of animals!). He’d go on to be an iconic figure in the valley, he was the town’s first mayor, he even laid the first stones to the local church.

    In a tip of the hat to the King of Clare the guys at Kirrihill have produced a first rate Shiraz after him. Look closely and you’ll see the label features the monkey, the stallion and the peacock!

    Aged 18 months in oak before release this is a more elegant rather than big, blockbuster style Aussie Shiraz. A Gold medal winner at the NZ International Wine Show, it’s got heaps of rich, creamy, dark fruit flavours and a velvety texture – delicious from whoa to go.
