Lou Miranda Estate Single Vineyard Shiraz 2017
- Rich, full-bodied
- Barossa Valley
The Barossa shiraz we’ve all been waiting for - the newest vintage of Lou Miranda’s single vineyard shiraz is back and isn’t here to mess around! Handcrafted from vines planted on stoney, clay & premium soil, this Barossa Valley dreamboat is laid out with the soil restricting the growth, channeling the grapes to be highly concentrated as they ripen. An old school shiraz, this wine has been matured in American oak barrels for FOUR YEARS, allowing for those juicy juicy tannins to fully develop and soften. Intense, bold and not afraid to stand out, this mofo fave has massive fruit mixed with massive oak. With flavours of deep plum, dark fruits and a creamy vanilla kick on top, you don’t need to hold back on the food flavours to pair. Go big, go rich, go hearty and have yourself a lavish time.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

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.
