Lou Miranda Estate Golden Lion Reserve Shiraz 2017
- Rich, full-bodied
- Barossa Valley
Oh sweet Lou, how the ‘Fo loves you! For six vintages running, our Mofo’s have snatched up all the Golden Lion shiraz as fast as we could get it into our warehouse. So where do we go from here? It’s onwards and upwards into the stratosphere of the reserve. For the first time in the history of the ‘Fo, we’ve got the Golden Lion RESERVE shiraz in stock. It’s from the excellent 2017 vintage and feels kinda like welding a jet engine to the back of their regular shiraz. Strap in tight cos it’s gonna be a wild ride.
In the glass, the colour is a deep crimson red and there’s lifted aromas of plum, pepper, vanilla and mocha. The palate is full and generous with dark fruits, interwoven spice and savoury tannins. Lou Miranda has included American oak in the ageing regime on this, adding a touch of coconut and further vanilla to the wine. It’s ready to go with a big ole’ steak right now or will happily nap in your cellar for 15 years. This big boy is here for you now and in the future.
“Strikingly delicious and seductively graceful, the wine is packed with dark fruit intensity together with dark chocolate, spicy oak, vanilla and toasted spice aromas. It’s dense and weighty, delivering awesome fruit power as well as flowing texture and velvety mouthfeel. Gratifying and immensely appealing.”
Full price $75.00 from the producer.

Lou Miranda Estate
Inspired by his Southern Italian upbringing, Lou Miranda believed that an exceptional wine should always be valued as much as a loving family and good friends. So in 2005 he established his eponymous winery in the Barossa Valley, with the help and support of his wife and two daughters, Lisa and Victoria. With an objective to 'create a unique wine experience combining traditional family elements and world-class wine making techniques', from the selection of first-class fruit to disciplined vineyard management and winemaking techniques, Lou Miranda are a force to be reckoned with.
'Barossa Valley'. This is Australia's key wine brand overseas, in the US especially. It's our riposte to 'Champagne', 'Scotch' and 'Barolo'. My mind conjures these images, in this order: Shiraz, Penfolds wine, Maggie Beer condiments. All of which can GET - IN - MY - BELLY! But there is so much more to the Barossa than first glance. There are fringe (and not so fringe) winemakers actively working to classify the valley's subregions, and this is a very worthy cause. From Moppa to Seppeltsfield to Marananga there's a lot of variation, and the styles produced can vary immensely. This is the next step in the vision of this region (which, let's face it, is a baby in the scheme of things), as it gets acquainted with its strengths, weaknesses and future opportunities.It's a region that's not sorry to produce the big, fruit-driven wine styles that make it so popular. So drink to the future of the Barossa, because it's as bright as any other region on the world stage.
