Tasting notes: Don’t tell Gary Shiraz
The DTG Shiraz is a beautiful dark garnet colour with black cherry, blueberry and mixed spice on the nose. Hints of pepper and soft oak spice are beautifully integrated with blackberry fruits and medium bodied silky tannins.

Producer / Region
They are an independent, family owned winery making wines that are served in beautiful bars and restaurants around the globe. Since their origin in 1968, they have steadily established themselves as Australia’s least well known top twenty winery, happily enjoying their under the radar reputation as a quality, efficient and innovative winemaker for those in the know.
Their aim, with every wine they make, is to produce excellent, high quality wines combining the care and attention of a micro producer with the efficiencies of a major player. This attention to detail and quest for perfection has seen us steadily attract like-minded partners across the globe, and allowed them to grow into the winery you see today.
The Winemaker, Jo Nash, makes every wine in our 700,000 dozen cases plus production each vintage. She makes wines in 225 litre barrels and 100,000 litre tanks, using her incredible talent to make hand crafted, thoughtful and elegant wines at every level. It is this ability to apply small batch techniques and care at every price point that sets us apart from the rest and makes our wines stand out in the crowd.
The diverse geography of the vineyards allows Jo to carefully select parcels for each of our wines using differences in the vineyard sites to bring elevated character and complexity, while always keeping their core values of balance and integrity central in every wine. Jo believes in exquisite balance, both in wine and in life, and it is this philosophy that she keeps front of mind in her hunt for perfection every vintage.
