Gioiello Estate was the chosen name for this family winery, in recognition of past generations of the Schiavello family who worked at a property named Gioiello (‘jewel’ in Italian), perched above a hillside town in Calabria, Italy.

Shiraz grapes selected from the Mt Concord block are handpicked, de-stemmed and crushed into open-top fermenters. The wine is then gently pressed and matured in French oak barriques for 18 months. Barrel selected cool-climate Syrah offers a perfume of spicy plums with toasty oak characters. The palate is textural and mouth-filling with flavours of plum, chocolate and clove.

Hand-picked, destemmed and crushed, open-fermented, matured in French barriques for 18 months. This is a powerhouse, dripping black fruits, licorice and spice on a seemingly endless palate, burying the tannins and oak in its folds - their time will come.
