This is not just a wine with a good story it's an extraordinary wine with an extraordinary and powerful story. Mt Yengo Shiraz has graced our table for two years now, it stands up against wines that come in at twice the price and always becomes the major talking point when we serve it to our guests.
"Don’t think, just order" The South Australia Shiraz pairs perfectly with quality steak. Very rare to see such a celebration of wine connecting Indigenous and non Indigenous Aussies.
