Gramps Shiraz

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2010 Vintage) says
One of the best value wines on the Australian market today, this fiery and assertive shiraz is artfully measured and balanced. It's complex and alluring, with a spicy, gamey bouquet of dark, brooding berry and plum-like fruit, cigarboxes and violets. Both sumptuous and elegant, it's deeply flavoured and velvety, with tremendous presence of fruit underpinned by firm, al dente tannins, finishing with depth and character. How they do this for the price, I simply have no idea!

Fine, supple and elegant, with a musky spicy and peppery bouquet of blackberries, dark plums and chocolatey oak with underlying suggestions of very ripe, meaty fruit. Smooth and even, it's very restrained and supple given the depth and intensity of its piercing shiraz fruit, and reveals a fine balance with fresh chocolate/mocha oak, fine tannins and soft acids. Artfully made.

Blackberry in a big sweet fruit style with excellent balance and gaining tannins.

This has become one of the most consistent performers in Australian wine. Great concentration of flavour for the bucks. The 2004 and 2005 releases were stars, but this is arguably better again. The most beautiful blokey red in town. It's loaded with flavour - coffee beans, blackberry, jubes and sweet raspberries - all of it flowing smoothly through to a more than satisfactory finish. Lovely texture, tannin structure and toasty, dark-fruited flavour. Great winter red.

Gramp's is both an Orlando brand and part of Orlando history - though I'm not supposed to use the word Orlando anymore. Orlando is owned by French company Pernod Ricard, and the umbrella now in favour is Jacob's Creek. 2005 RELEASE Yee-ha, we have another winner - I like it even more than the 2004. It's old-fashioned black Barossan shiraz at its bountiful best. Smooth blackberry and blood plums, carried on a wave of coffee and vanilla. Replica of the 2004 except that the flavour carries longer thicker and juicier. DRINK 2008-2011.

Medium- to medium-full-bodied wine, with perfect fruit ripeness, and, likewise, oak balance; fine, long tannins. Gold medal National Wine Show '06.

Gramp's is both an Orlando brand and part of Orlando history - though I'm not supposed to use the word Orlando anymore. Orlando is owned by French company Pernod Ricard, and the umbrella now in favour is Jacob's Creek. 2004 RELEASE This will be near the end of its retail run but you might find the odd bottle around. I've been banging on about it for months. It's an uncompromising red - chock-a-block full of dark, porty blackberry and coffeed, American oak flavour. Big-oaked, big flavour Barossan shiraz at a bargain price. DRINK 2008-2011.
