There are few names in Australian wine as revered as those of Giaconda and its founder Rick Kinzbrunner. Since 1982, Rick has dedicated himself to the pursuit of vinous excellence in the Beechworth region. A lover of great Burgundy, Kinzbrunner is best-known for his incredibly powerful Chardonnay, with Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo not far behind. There is a theme running through the wine releases from this much anticipated 2021 vintage; power, complexity and refinement.
The 2021 Giaconda Beechworth Shiraz shows a superb tannin profile that has put more grunt in the engine and strengthened the chassis for greater endurance. Briar and undergrowth, Chinese five spice, roasted beetroot and raspberry licorice. Richly fruited and exotically spiced with a dynamic tannin structure that will age gracefully. A veritable iron fist in a velvet glove.
"This new shiraz wine represents an evolution in our wine making for this variety. This is a combination of wine matured in new and older small French oak, large 1600 LT French oak casks and long maceration on skins (10 months) in Spanish terracotta amphorae. This brings much more complexity and, especially, more depth and tannin from the long maceration."- Rick Kinzbrunner, Winemaker.
