Gilberts Wines

Gilberts Wines

Small family-owned vineyard making some of the best shiraz fruit in the Great Southern. In addition, some excellent chardonnay and very classy Riesling are also made. The shiraz, however, with its beautifully seductive Rhone-like characters make it consistently a standout wine.

Gilberts Riesling 2016 ($24)

Attractive, classically defined Great Southern Riesling with all those lovely spicy characters and light citrus feel. Crisp and clean with a long intensity sustained by a fine acid. Love the floral notes on the nose and the vibrancy of the palate. Nice wine.
SCORE 91/100 CELLAR 7 years

Gilberts Reserve shiraz 2012 ($30)

Gilberts produces some of the best shiraz in the region, has done for years. This one captures the subtlety of shiraz from Mount Barker. Soft and supple with spicy savoury characters working through the deep deliciously dark fruit. Spicy dark chocolate flavours add another dimension.
SCORE 89/100 CELLAR 9 years
