Exclusive to Wines By Design
Joanne Irvine personally selects Barossa Shiraz from trusted local grape growers, exclusively for Wines By Design.
Bright yet deep ruby in colour, Joanne’s Shiraz starts with wild berry and fine French Oak aromas lifting from the glass.
Joanne’s Shiraz is matured in fine French oak and created to be intense in flavour, yet soft and approachable upon release.
The palate is an ensemble of rich, ripe gathered black fruits, with elements of mixed savoury spice, continuing to impress in succulent waves.
Silken tannins create the perfect finish.
Joanne has been inducted as a Baron of the Barossa and making wine since the 1990s is a highly sought after multi trophy and award-winning specialist winemaker.
