Some dads just know what they like and that’s that. Despite you trying to convince him to try something new or open his mind, he’s set in his ways. As a brand who only produces wine from the Barossa Valley, we get it. For the shiraz-lover in your life, our 2019 Stockyard Shiraz is the one for him. Sourced from premium parcels in the Barossa, this is a smooth, well-balanced Shiraz. It’s a traditional meets modern wine, with a more contemporary twist on the bold Barossan Shiraz.

The Food-Lover Dad: 2019 Gravel Track Cabernet Sauvignon

This one is for the dad who loves to cook and eat. He sees wine as a compliment to any dish he creates, so the flavours of the wine must be as balanced as the food he’s cooking. If he’s a warm man that enjoys hearty meals, like beef and mushroom pie or slow cooked beef short ribs, than our 2019 Gravel Track Cabernet Sauvignon is the one for him. Fruit-forward, approachable and delicious while young, it’s brimming with blackcurrant and cherry nuances, with delicate tannins and hints of cedar oak, making this wine the perfect pair to that Father’s Day meal you’re planning to cook him.
