21 June



The Backyard

With an astounding line-up of events throughout winter, the Osbourne Hotel is bringing out the best Shiraz in the business alongside a bevy of dinners and tastings for a season of Shiraz appreciation.

Slowly work your way through our curated list of fifteen Shiraz Finalists, with the notion to vote for your favourites. At the end of the events, your votes will be tallied to reveal the winner at the ‘Shiraz Showdown’ full day event on August 5th.

Craig Hanworth from Mezzanine Wines will be showcasing Shiraz from Yangarra Estate, a biodynamic wine farm in South Australia’s McLaren Vale region.

Yangarra Estate specialises in Mediterranean varieties grown mainly as bush vines. Their whole wine philosophy is built around the Estate’s original, dry-farmed bush vines planted in 1946.

Wine tastings of:

• Yangarra Preservative Free Shiraz
• Yangarra Estate Shiraz
• Yangarra Whole bunch Shiraz
• Yangarra Iron heart Shiraz

Since 2000 Peter Fraser has been the winemaker and driving force behind Yangarra Estate Vineyard, and his 2001 Yangarra Estate Shiraz and 2004 Cadenzia both included in the Wine Spectator Top 100.

In 2005 and 2006 (under Peter’s direction) Yangarra Estate wines won International Winery of the Year from Wine & Spirits.

Most recently, Peter was named Winemaker of the Year by James Halliday as part of his 2016 Wine Companion Awards.
