Discover the Legacy: Upper Reach Reserve Shiraz

Have you heard about the Upper Reach Reserve Shiraz? IYKYN, if not you're in for a treat. This gem from the Swan Valley is making waves for all the right reasons. Let's dive into the story behind this fantastic wine and find out what makes it so special.

A Bit of Backstory

First, a little background on our family-owned winery. Nestled in the beautiful Swan Valley, we've been crafting amazing wines since 1996. Nowadays, we still use old-school winemaking techniques but with a modern twist and the Reserve Shiraz is a shining example of our winemakers' expertise. The warm climate and rich soil of the Swan Valley helps our Shiraz grapes reach peak ripeness, giving us a wine that’s packed with flavour, year in year out.

Consistent Quality? You Bet!

We're all about consistency and quality. We take extra care at every step, from hand-picking the grapes to aging the wine in top-notch oak barrels for 12 months. It’s a labour of love, and you can taste it in every sip. The winemaking process is a mix of tradition and innovation. 

Flavour Explosion

Let’s talk about the real star here – the Reserve Shiraz. This wine is a dark, deep purple-red that’s just begging to be poured. The moment you take a whiff, you’re hit with a lush mix of spiced plum, forest fruits with hints of black pepper, star anise and tomato leaf. Then your tastebuds do a happy dance with oodles of plum, mulberry, chocolate, vanilla and spice. Soft, lush tannins and balanced acidity lead into a long, uplifted, fruity finish.

What to Pair It With

The Reserve Shiraz is super versatile when it comes to food pairings. It’s perfect with grilled lamb, juicy steaks, or even venison. If you’re going vegetarian, try it with a hearty mushroom risotto or a rich veggie stew. Of course, it’s also fantastic on its own – sometimes you just want to savour the wine itself, right?


In a nutshell, the Upper Reach Reserve Shiraz is a standout wine that’s all about tradition, quality, and incredible flavour. Whether you’re a seasoned wine aficionado or just starting your wine journey, this Shiraz is a must-try. So grab a bottle (or two), pour yourself a glass, and enjoy a little taste of the Swan Valley. Cheers to amazing wine and even better times!
