Centare Vineyard is located in the heart of the Yarra Valley, Australia’s most prestigious, cool-climate wine region, renowned for producing some of the most exceptional, varietal wines in the world.

Yarra Valley Shiraz is one of the region’s best kept secrets, with the best, generally warmer sites, producing award winning wines with great depth and intensity of cool-climate character and flavour.

Awards & Reviews: 

91 Points: Halliday Wine Companion - Hand picked and fermented in small open fermenters with 15% whole bunches. Matured in 20% new French and 5% new American barriques. A vibrant crimson purple. A nicely put together and polished wine with red and black fruits, a little white pepper and some charcuterie notes. The oak is slick but well handled. Medium bodied and even better on the palate, which is redolent of red fruits and spice. Ripe, fine tannins round out a wine that can be enjoyed now and over the next 5â€?0 years.

Tasting Notes:

This is an intensely highly perfumed, complex and flavoursome expression of cool-climate Yarra Valley Shiraz. Quite tightly wound when young, the wine will benefit tremendously from decanting prior to serving, but more significantly, from a minimum of five years of bottle age. Red berries, white pepper & spice, cedar, vanilla and coffee bean undertones, and with fine, structural tannins and enduring acidity and flavour. 


No expense has been spared to ensure the most pristine fruit expression â€?this is serious Shiraz. The fruit was hand-picked, then meticulously sorted to select only the best berries for fermentation in three, small, open fermenters - each with approximately 15% whole bunches. The fermenters were gently plunged twice daily during fermentation, and left ‘on skinsâ€?for a total of 20 days during maceration. The wine was then matured in premium oak barriques, for almost 12 months before bottling in May 2020.
