Gnangara is an Aboriginal word, the meaning and origin of which is not known, although possibly meaning ‘spring’. The Gnangara wines derive their name from the lake and related aquifer that fed the original Gnangara Shiraz vineyards in the Swan Valley and is a source of drinking water for Perth.

The original Gnangara wines had a purity of fruit expression and flavour impact never before seen in Western Australian wines due to the ability to blend select parcels of fruit from vineyards across WA.

Wines with the Gnangara name have now been made for 45 consecutive years and have returned to the style that made them an Australian favourite.

In addition to this delicious Shiraz, we have also released a Semillon Sauvignon Blanc.

winemaking

This multi-regional wine was made from to primary parcels of fruit. A soft, generous parcel from some of the southern-most vineyards in WA is balanced by pungent, aromatic, peppery fruit from a mature maritime vineyard in the heart of WA’s south-west. Minimal oak influence and a hands-off winemaking approach allow these two parcels of fruit to work in harmony to showcase everything great about Gnangara Shiraz.

Ripe plummy fruit dominates this made-to-drink-now wine under this famous brand name. Has a lift of cherry and rose petal with savoury spicy notes. The palate is soft and supple with understated tannins and subtle oak. Balanced and ideal for drinking over the next few years.
