Four Sisters Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

The four sisters in question are the daughters of the winemaker Trevor mast and cleverly illustrated onto the front label. This Shiraz like the rest of the range is made in a drink now style to be enjoyed in informal situations like a barbecue with a mountain of meat and a surplus of sausages. Berries, pepper and spice is the order of the day in this quafftastic Shiraz that’s beautifully balanced.

Winemaker's Notes

A medium-bodied, bright magenta coloured wine offering ripe, plump aromas and flavours of raspberries, plums and blackcurrants. Background notes of spice and licorice and fine, soft tannins on the finish complete the package.

Food: A classic partner to wood fired pizza, rack of lamb or barbequed grilled steak.

Cellaring: 2014 - 2018

Alcohol: 13.5%

Winemaking: The grapes for this wine were picked and crushed in the cool of the night ensuring the retention of varietal character whilst modern winemaking techniques were employed through the entire process. Fermentation took place in sweeping arm red fermenters giving the wine a denser, richer colour and allowing for gentle flavour extraction. The wine was then aged in a combination of French and American oak along with some portions kept in stainless steel tanks to ensure the fruit dominance of the style.

Expert Reviews

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2008 Vintage) says
Was a beloved brand during the 1990s often seen on bistro wine lists, though its prominence seems to have slipped. It has a sweet core of fruit flavour and a clean finish, which makes drinking it an easy pastime. It tastes of cherries, liquorice and spice. Light to medium weight. Reasonable drinking.

WINESTATE (2006 Vintage) says
Zesty, peppery bouquet and quite an oaky palate, but theres good weight and focus of cherry fruit characters.

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (1999 Vintage) says
Mt Langi Ghiran produces one of this country's very best shiraz so Trevor Mast knows a thing or two about handling the variety. His second label pays tribute to his four daughters. Daliah, the oldest of them, has returned the compliment with her eyecatching, stylised label design. The Four Sisters Shiraz has dusty, spicy aromas, briary, peppery and black fruit flavours, is soft, round and lively with firm, fine tannins on the finish.
