Since its very first Vintage when it won the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy, The Long Road Shiraz has quickly become one of the most storied and eagerly sought-after Shiraz wines.
Part of the intrigue of The Long Road Shiraz stems from the fact that it was born to express the new and exciting wine regions around the high country of NSW, as an elegant and contemporary style of Shiraz. The style has evolved since 2008, when exploring the high country of NSW predominantly involved Canberra and the Hilltops region. It has now extended to include the hidden jewel of the Gundagai region as a thriving source for Long Road Shiraz.
The Long Road Shiraz continues to fascinate wine show judges and wine critics, winning three trophies at the Canberra regional wine show for Best Shiraz, Best Red Wine, and best wine of the show.The Long Road Shiraz then went on to win Australia’s most sought after trophy, the Jimmy Watson memorial trophy at the Melbourne Wine Show. As recently as November 2012, The Long Road Shiraz won the Trophy for Best Shiraz at the National Show.
