2015 Connor Park Bendigo Shiraz
The Lougoon family has operated their Bendigo winery since 1985. They have some of the oldest Shiraz vines in the region (planted in the 1960’s). Originally selling their fruit, in 1993 that all changed when grape pricing dropped and in 1995 the first wines were released under the Connor Park label. Jake Lougoon drops the wines to us on the way to work at our venue in South Wharf. Their Shiraz is not a shy wine, with 18 months in American oak and 15.5% alcohol. Theirs loads of cedar, cinnamon, vanilla and mulberry fruits.
