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.

2013 Grampians Shiraz – MAGNUM

This is a 1500mL (magnum) size bottle.

Usually our 8 vineyards are picked across a six to eight week period, different varieties and aspects ripening at different times. With the very warm, early 2013 vintage however every berry, every block, every variety was picked in a week and a half. All ripe at once. All we could do was GO! The warm vintage has provided a classic dark fruit spectrum, but we picked early enough to keep the wines from being too broad. In fact, they are mineral and floral and tightly structured. Finer boned than we had thought. This year’s wine is a blend of the warmer, Hyde Park Vineyard (58%), the cooler, 44 yr old Westgate Vineyard (27%) and the balance from the fleshy Rice’s Vineyard (15%). As always, wild yeast fermented.

Only 12 made.
