Easily our best value $15 Shiraz in store, the 2019 Theory of Evolution is an absolute star in it's price range and is sure to pick up as much admiration and accolades as the previous vintages have. It's full of sweet ripe fruits with spice and plenty of life.

From the Langhorne region (South of McLaren Vale) and made by ex-Villa Maria, Matua winemaker Corey Ryan for Australia's innovative Fourth Wave Wines. Deep, dark colour with ripe black fruits balanced by a spicy savouriness; the wine caresses the palate – there are no hard edges and finishes nice and dry. Although this will cellar for a while, we think this just hits the spot for drink now enjoyment.


Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Inspired by humankind’s evolution through thousands of years, The Theory of Evolution Wines embody the inevitable journey of wine lovers to enjoying the world’s classic great varieties. Winemaker Corey Ryan has crafted each varietally expressive and well balanced wine from established low yielding vineyards to deliver quality and value that will appeal to all wine drinkers.

 Sourced from established vineyards in the Langhorne Creek region in South Australia. The sheltered aspect and consistent temperatures combine to ensure the retention of natural acidity in the elegant fruit harvested. Picked partially by hand. The fruit is hand-harvested and vineyard sorted before de-stemming and a traditional vinification in small two and three tonne open fermenters with regular hand plunging before partial maturation in three hundred litre American oak barrels for six months.

Trademark Langhorne Creek intensity of flavour with good density and concentration evident. On the nose there’s a profusion of dark fruits complexed by integrated oak and a hint of eucalypt. The palate is fulsome with dark fruit intensity, some mocha oak and a subtle licorice note. It’s bold and flavoursome with fresh acidity the finish. Pair with a Chargrilled steak, and a rich gravy."


91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Expressing lovely fruit intensity, the wine shows black/blueberry, mixed spice, roasted hazelnut and subtle game characters on the nose. It’s equally attractive on the palate, delivering succulent fruit flavours and plump mouthfeel, well supported by smooth texture and silky tannins. Upfront and delectably friendly. At its best: now to 2025."

"Spicy and invigorating with a sweet ripe fruit texture buffered by savoury and smoky elements to give layers of interest. Packed with flavour yet showing a restraint that is endearing and delicious, especially at this price."

The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
