Gold Medal – New Zealand International Wine Show 2017


Classic Barossa Shiraz that you can always have faith in what it delivers…. a full bodied and beautifully balanced Barossa experience with a brightness of fruit with many underlying layers, rich tannins and fantastic length. 


Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Grapes for the Faith Shiraz are sourced from vineyards across the Barossa, including Lyndoch in the south to Eden Valley in the west, providing a cross section of flavours which arise from the differences in climate and soils.

The fruit is harvested during the warmth of the day, brought to the winery, immediately crushed into stainless steel fermenters and inoculated with a neutral yeast strain. Maturation occurs in a combination of new, one, two and three year old French and American oak barrels for 12-16 months before blending and bottling.

An Australian classic. It’s one of Australia’s most loved reds for a reason, super reliable and delicious with the unmistakable Barossa character. Enjoy now or cellar for up to five years from vintage. A versatile wine for classic standbys such as grilled lamb chops done on the BBQ, slow cooked Osso Bucco, wintry stews or your own special Bolognaise sauce on your pasta of choice. Match it with your preferred 'Sunday Roast' – veggie, chicken, pork, beef or lamb."


NZIWS (2016 Vintage)
"It's saturated with blackberry, plum jam, smoky bacon and spicy oak characters, backed by an impressively weighted palate that's energetic and satisfying."


Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com (2016 Vintage)
"Deep purple in the glass, inky and intense. Ripe red and black berries and leather fill the bouquet that's laced with chocolate and woody spices and it's stellar and structured in the palate with reasonably firm tannins that have a supple velvet-coated edge. The mouthfilling flavours exude smoky oak, hints of bacon, leather, spices and an amalgam of ripe berry fruit including plums, mulberries and cherries, and the finish is long and satisfying."


4 Stars Cuisine Shiraz Tasting, June 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"This is ‘go to’ shiraz for many people, and with good reason. It’s a substantial wine, but balance is maintained the whole way. Dark tea and crushed blueberry scents usher in a vibrant palate with purity, depth and integrated oak. The tannin structure is impressive – big and grippy, yet disciplined."
