Boireann Named in James Halliday's 20 Great Reds

Boireann, another vintage, another accolade - this Granite Belt winery continues to shine on a national scale.

The latest James Halliday Wine Companion Magazine (June/July 2012 edition) has sung its praise, selecting their 2010 Shiraz in James Halliday's personal list of 20 Great Reds.

In choosing these 20 red wines, I was not attempting to combine a list of the greatest red wines that have been released in the last six or so months, simply 20 great wines. You will also see they come from many different regions including Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley, Geographe, Granite Belt, Heathcote, Hunter Valley, Margaret River, McLaren Vale, Mudgee and the Yarra Valley.

The 2010 Boireann Granite Belt Shiraz was described as:

The vivid purple-crimson colour does not deceive; this is yet another beautifully balanced, beautifully structured shiraz from Boireann, astute selection of fruit from across the Granite Belt conjured by the inspired winemaking of Peter Stark into a wine sitting comfortably with the best wines of the southern and western states.

With only a limited quantity of this superb wine available, be sure to secure a bottle or two soon. For further information visit our website.
