    The St Andrews vineyard in Clare Valley goes back 125 years when two Scottish immigrants purchased the 323 acre farming property and turn it into vineyards and orchards, naming it after the patron saint of their homeland. In 1995 Taylors Estate bought the historic site and four years later they’d produced their first wines from this awesome site.

    The highest quality fruit, aged 20 months in oak, this is one of the Clare Valley’s most iconic Shiraz labels and not one for the faint hearted. It’s a big, full bodied, powerful style with big tannins and sweet-fruit – like we say, a whopper!

    It’s little surprise to see a class act like this make influential UK wine writer Matthew Jukes’ “Best100 Australian Wines” in 2019/20. Jukes said “2016 St Andrews Shiraz which is 100% barrel-fermented in tight grain Ozark / Shenandoah oak. This American oak stands back from the wine and allows it to build power and also intensity. Lifted, creamy, sturdy and profound, this is yet another superb wine from this irrepressible operator.”

    A special wine that will comfortably cellar into 2030 and beyond!
