Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin 2020 (700ml) + BONUS FREE MARMALADE

2020 will go down as one of the strangest vintages on record. While half the country was on fire and experienced extreme heat, the Yarra was quite the opposite. Overall we had very mild conditions and high rainfall so the region stayed green for most of summer.

Intensified fruit flavours in the Shiraz grapes that go in to Four Pillars annual release of Bloody Shiraz Gin, it resulted from the cool conditions and allowing great spice, red berry and natural acidity. Straight up there's juniper, white pepper and spices and then the gin is balanced with a delicious fruit-driven sweetness and nice tannins to finish.

Strange times calls for strange release dates... that's right with the start of June having been and gone the 2020 Bloody Shiraz Gin from Four Pillars is finally available now. Available to buy now from Wine Sellers Direct you receive a bonus FREE Four Pillars Orange Marmalade with EACH BOTTLE valued at $10 whilst stocks last.

Not far from the Four Pillars distillery at Healesville are some of Yarra Valley's most auspicious vineyards. With this at their doorstep, distiller, Cameron Mackenzie took inspiration from the traditional purple-hued sloe berry Gins of the UK, by creating a uniquely Australian rendition.

The season was set up nicely courtesy of good spring rain, then January and February saw some very dry conditions with the odd bloody hot day that combined to bring vintage forward by a week.

While the majority of our grapes were again sourced from the same three vineyards in our home in the Yarra Valley, this is the first year we also took some grapes from other cool Southern Victorian regions. We sourced a small percentage from the Yea Valley just over the Black Spur to our north and also a parcel from Southern Bendigo to our west, which is cooler still than the Yarra itself.

The fruit quality was sensational across the board (thanks growers). Following the same principles as 2018, harvesting some Shiraz early, looking for spice and red berry characters, and a second parcel later in the season to build colour, sweetness and darker fruit flavours.

The resulting colour remains a deep, rich, reddish purple. And the aromas and flavours? Well, straight up there are pine forest juniper notes followed by white pepper, dark berries and spices. The palate is beautifully balanced with both sweetness and gin in spades, and some nice tannins on the finish. Thirsty now? We bloody hope so... Each year we steep Shiraz grapes in gin, and after eight weeks we press the fruit before blending with more Rare Dry Gin.

The ABV is 37.8%, unlike Sloe Gin where the alcohol less than 30%. So it packs a punch and is ideal in a range of cocktails. The gin is unfiltered, so it will develop secondary fruit characters beyond two years, and is best consumed within two years of vintage. Distillery Notes
