Located in the high quality but often overlooked region of Beechworth, Battely is situated on the Old Brown Brothers Everton Hills property. This is a dark, dense, savoury wine that offers olives, plums, spice, hung meat and gamey notes. The palate is dry and structured but with beautiful flesh and vibrancy at its core. To put it simply it is just delicious drinking.
Beechworth – Built on the fame and drive of Giaconda, the region of Beechworth has a lot to offer wine lovers. With a good diversity of styles from rich Chardonnay to Pinot Noir as well as Shiraz and Cabernet all doing well it is a must visit place.
Shiraz/Syrah – A bit of a chameleon, Shiraz can change how it looks depending on terroir and/or wine maker influence. The Syrah based wines of Northern Rhone are dry and austere while the Shiraz of Barossa is rich and fleshy. A variety that lends itself to long aging but can be drunk at any time of its evolution.
