The Story Wines is oddly located in a drab, southern suburb of Melbourne, Australia. There we receive grapes from some fabulous Grampians and Henty vineyards, and turn them into wine. Each vintage there is a new story to tell, and each year our label changes to reflect that story. Small budgets, small vineyards, engaging subjects.

2010 Temperance Grampians Shiraz

Cellar Door

Ironic certainly, but temperance, here represented by the 14thcard of the tarot, is the story of this vintage in many ways. This wine is the synthesis of four vineyards and several winemaking ideas to create a harmonious expression of the region and vintage. 2010 was also a year for unions, marriages and healing; a restoration of balance, of rains that broke drought, and wines of subtlety and flow, free of excesses.The 2010 shows a move towards greater textural expression, less reliance on acidity and extraction of tannin, which may lead to the wines not ageing as long, but they are more delicious in the short term. Drink over 3 years. From Westgate Vineyard 50%, Garden Gully Vineyard 30% and Rice’s Vineyard 20%.
