2019 Premiership Wine

Last Updated:

Wine time just got a whole lot better, as our premium 2019 Premiership Wine, Solid Gold, is now available to pre-order!

Reillys exquisite 2016 ‘Stolen Block’ Shiraz has been hand crafted from some of the oldest shiraz vineyards in the Clare Valley which were planted in 1926.

These dry grown old vines have deep, strong roots which allow the plant to access deeper moisture and more diverse nutrients and minerals. These vines are steady and reliable and less likely to be affected by adverse weather conditions, consistently producing small yields of top-quality fruit year after year.

The grapes have concentrated flavours, balanced acidity and are hand-picked at optimal ripeness.

Winemaker Justin Ardill uses traditional wine making techniques of open fermentation, hand plunging and maturation in French oak for 22 months to allow this quality fruit to truly shine. The result is a rich, full bodied wine showing the strength and depth of the old vines with layers of succulent dark berry flavours and a touch of aniseed. The wine finishes with mocha, sweet vanilla, well integrated oak and smooth, velvety mouth feel with firm lingering tannins.

Solid Gold promises elegance and the finest quality blend fit for a premiership winner.  Whether you’re a wine connoisseur or avid Tigers collector (or both), this is one bottle of wine you don’t want to miss.

Indulge in a glass (or two) today! Pre-order your bottle here or email reception@glenelgfc.com.au. Available as a single bottle or dozen.
