Sangiovese Shiraz 2009: $25
Shiraz 06: $22
The 2006 Shiraz, is a wine that is exceptional. This year at Granitevale produced wonderful fruit primarily because of the long dry season and our ability to control water to the vines. Again exclusively hand picked the result is a spectacular estate wine exhibiting a full body with sumptuous fruit on the palet, yet displaying all the finesse of cool climate reds. This intense yet delicately balanced Shiraz has resulted in a wine that is rich in berry flavours, fine tannins and a long finish. Imbibe now in moderation, or benefit from good cellaring up to ten years.
Cabernet Sauvignon 2006: $30
The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon has benefited from another excellent season where the fruit was able to develop over a long consistent period. The resulting wine displays intense yet balanced characteristics, producing a full bodied wine while showing a delightful currant, cherry and cedar nose. Pronounced ripeness, soft tannins and a nice touch of acidity result in a great palate. Imbibe now in moderation, or cellar well for up to ten years.
Merlot 2006: $22
The 2006 Merlot is another outstanding example of this wonderful wine variety. The third of our hand picked vintages, with fruit sourced exclusively from Taemus Vineyard, the wine is softly textured and highly flavoured. The wine features supple silky tannins coupled with plenty of raspberry, plum and fruitcake flavours.
Barrel fermented exclusively in a combination of new and older French oak, the hints of chocolate cedar and black Olives add complexity, while the fresh acid finish completes this very well balanced wine. Imbibe now in moderation, or cellar well for six-seven years.
Riesling 2009: $20
Typical of a Riesling from the Canberra Cool Climate District the Granitevale 2009 Riesling has a wonderful floral nose (rose petal and violets) with great lime and lemon characteristics across the pallet. It is a very well balanced wine with a terrific clean, crisp, finish. Is drinking extremely well as a young wine and will also age with extraordinary grace.

Sauvignon Blanc 2010: $18
The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc is another fine light-medium bodied wine developed from purely Estate grown fruit.

The pallet displaying hints of asparagus and gooseberry lingers through a well weighted middle pallet to a crisp finish providing excellent balance. Imbibe in moderation.
