If our Great Western region were somehow prohibited from growing Shiraz, it would probably be just as famous for its Cabernets. Intense spicy, berry, leafy aromas and long, dense, yet supple flavours and classic structure are hallmarks of Great Western Cabernet Sauvignon.

To commemorate their centenary year as vignerons, Viv Thomson and his family specially selected this 1992 Great Western shiraz produced entirely from vines planted by Henry Best in the late 1860's.  What is now known the Thomson Family Shiraz Block.

This shiraz epitomises all that is "Concongella" Great Western.

Deep rich garnet, colour not showing much age.  A lively palate with velvety tannins, fresh acidity, and long generous finish.  Rich intensity yet delicate.  Still youthful.

Our Thomson Family Shiraz has been made only nine times in 20 years and has become a highly collectible and sought-after wine.    

The fruit flavours here are strong and dark, more so than you would normally expect of a Great Western Shiraz.  It gives the wine a sense of gravity and command.  Drink to 2040.

On the nose, it appears closed at first. This wine takes time to reveal its intense dark fruit aromas with an array of complexity including all spice, nori, black pepper, blueberries, rose petals, cedar and dark chocolate. On the palate the essence of the vineyard is displayed with intense, yet vibrant medium-bodied flavours of dark fruits and chocolate. A graphite minerality and savoury fine tannins linger in the mouth.
