  The 2014 Schiller Shiraz is finally here.     This is a wine not only rich in flavour but rich in history too.

GSM. What’s that all about?

By | 2014-06-18T07:37:11+00:00 June 18th, 2014|Wine|

Initially, things were shaping up for the first fruit to be picked in late February – on the back of good Winter rainfall and mild Spring temperatures.
