About this wine

Unveil the allure of Stationman Shiraz 2021, a Southern Fleurieu marvel crafted by the artisans at Nangkita Estate Vineyards. This wine encapsulates the essence of the region’s terroir, a seamless blend of nature’s bounty and expert winemaking.

Hailing from South Australia’s prestigious appellation, the Shiraz 2021 is a testament to the meticulous viticulture that shapes its character. The vineyard’s elevated position above limestone and the Mediterranean climate combine to nurture grapes of exceptional quality. With a controlled 235mm rainfall and average temperatures of 20°C, the vines yield fruit that resonates with the land.

Guided by the skilled hands of Nangkita’s winemakers, the Shiraz achieves an elegance that defines it. The process involves natural yeast fermentation, honouring the intrinsic qualities of the grapes. A gentle maceration period and minimal interventions allow the terroir to shine. Aging gracefully, the wine undergoes maturation in French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks, culminating in a harmonious composition.

In the glass, ‘Stationman’ Shiraz 2021 captivates with its deep purple hue, a prelude to the aromatic journey that unfolds. Perfumed notes of dried violet blossom evoke memories of the Northern Rhone, intertwined with rich blackberry, sweet cherry, and alluring spicy oak characters. The palate offers a wonderful weightiness, a dry and full-bodied indulgence complemented by a creamy texture.

The wine’s supple tannins gracefully complete the experience, carrying a long and satisfying finish. Equally appealing on both the nose and palate, ‘Stationman’ Shiraz 2021 is a testament to flavoursome elegance and an immensely gratifying choice. Paired perfectly with Scotch Fillet Steak, this wine offers a symphony of taste that embodies the finesse of Southern Fleurieu’s vineyards.

This terroir-expressive Shiraz embodies elegance and restraint. Deep purple in colour, the wine delivers a perfumed, Northern-Rhone-reminiscent nose of dried violet blossom, blackberry, black cherry, cassis, black raspberry and rhubarb. On the palate the dry, full-bodied Shiraz has a somewhat creamy texture, with supple tannin completing with a long finish. This Shiraz is equally attractive on the nose as it is on the palate.

Richly fruited and immediately appealing with blackberry, sweet cherry, rich floral and spicy oak characters on the nose, followed by a wonderfully weighty palate offering richness with supple texture and fine tannins. Splendidly flavoursome and highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2035.

From the relatively cool climate in Southern Fleurieu, South Australia, where ocean matters have a great affect on the Stationman Shiraz. Darker and more intense than Mr. Lush cabernet sauvignon, 10 times the mineral cut and meaty to demi-glacé. The gastronomic brother, looking to sidle up alongside venison seared rare, blood oozing, juices tempting. A serious shiraz, stormy and complicated, structured and making noises. Drink 2024-2030. Value rating: 4/5.

From the sand over limestone Nangkita Vineyard, this is very fine pointed, almost delicate yet richly fruited shiraz. It sports classic ripe black cherry fruit, with heady black rose, mild pepper and meaty notes. It is medium-full bodied full of flavour, but somehow light on its feet with juicy acidity and slightly gritty tannin. The length is very good to excellent. Value rating: 4/5.
