About This Wine
It was the 1840s. A colony in Australia was growing and in need of organization.
The colony was situated in today’s McLaren Vale region in the state of South Australia. To bring together the farmers and merchants so both could make a better living, a Farmers & Stockholders Club was formed. Items on the club’s initial agenda included some not unfamiliar to those involved in agriculture today: improving cropping practices… concerns over high wages…
Grapevines were planted all around the colony, and it soon became customary to conclude each meeting with a glass of wine and to toast “prosperity to the province.” This label pays homage to those pioneers who paved the way for what today is one of the world’s great winegrowing areas.
The 2014 Farmers & Stockholders “Prosperity to the Province” Shiraz (the Australian name for Syrah) is a fruit-forward, full-bodied wine worthy of your family’s most important toasting occasions.
Very dark, rich, powerful wines with great aging potential (as long as 50 years), yet still can be drunk relatively young. Distinct pepper, spice, cherry and leather flavors, with smooth, supple texture. Embodied in majestic wines from France, Australia and, increasingly, California.
