"It's great that this wine has won a Gold every year in the last 5 Years" - Jason O'Dea

 

The Pig in the House Shiraz is.... excellent! It's a wine which, at first sip, does induce a raised eyebrow, a nice colour with purples and reds. Aromatically the wine is Cowra and Shiraz, with dark berry fruits of blackberry, and ripe cherries. Aromatic spices are mixed with white and black pepper and vanilla.

    The Pig in the House Shiraz is.... excellent! It's a wine which, at first sip, does induce a raised eyebrow, a nice colour with purples and reds. Aromatically the wine is Cowra and Shiraz, with dark berry fruits of blackberry, and ripe cherries. Aromatic spices are mixed with white and black pepper and vanilla.

    The palate is a well balanced, it will be appreciated by most red wine drinkers, it has primary fruit purity, and exceptional flavour density. The persistence of flavour is this wines true hallmark, where flavours linger for longer, and flavour complexity develops during this appreciable period. Basically, a good wine which will complement conversation or a Bistecca alla Fiorentina, cooked naturally over live coals. Enjoy!

  • 93 POINTS "Oh, this is pretty. Raspberries race to befriend you. I think I'll stay awhile. There's is an inherent freshness here that cannot be denied. And slurp factor too. Add some dark cherries and soft oak that imparts some vanilla, milk chocolate and delicate waves of soft spice tease and you have a really enjoyable drink. The fruit comes off a certified organic vineyard too, this is right in the zone for a $25 drink. Check it out. Drink to five years." QWINE, Aug 2021

     

    91 POINTS "You don’t see the name Cowra on the front label of many bottles nowadays. It’s not on the label of this wine either. The Pig from Cowra. It’s grown organically. It’s a good wine. Good to drink, right now. Polished. Fruit-driven. Tipped with toasty oak, just the right amount. Red-berried fruits with florals. Maybe some star anise, just. Dry tannin in modest but appropriate measure. It’s very nicely done, and offers good value." The Winefront, Campbell Mattinson

     

    91 Points "Bright purple, like a mulberry stain on your fingers. Aromatic cherry and red currant with a red licorice tang, sweet vanilla bean and pink peppercorns. Youthfully fruit forward and carrying the right amount smooth polish through the medium-full body. Red fruit flavour smooshes with a fine sheet of tannin, giving a balanced rasp. Plenty to enjoy." Vinonotebook, Regan Drew, Sept 2021

     

    "This 2020 Pig in the House Organic Shiraz is replete with fresh, fulsome and palate-warming primary varietal characters. Cherry-ripe, pepper, vanilla, licorice and Christmas pudding aromas and flavours swamp the tastebuds from the first pour 'n' sip. The 14.5% Alc component warms and supports the punchy palate glide to a long fruit-driven finish. This is another generous, well-priced Organic Shiraz from Jason O'Dea which will undoubtedly continue his medal-winning journey. It's a drop that can be enjoyed by itself [perhaps even on ice] but would also be a hearty match to solid protein-based dishes." The Grape Hunter, Gilbert Labour

     

    "With 14.5% alcohol, bright crimson hues and berry pastille aromas, it has juicy blackcurrant front-palate flavour. The middle palate features Maraschino cherry, rhubarb, spearmint and toasty oak characters and thefinish has ferric tannins." Canberra Times, John Lewis

    "A really appealing #organic #shiraz from Pig In The House - Organic Fine Wine 2020 #orangensw the busy bouquet is full of cherries, red berries, plums with a hint of cloves & spice+ a smidge of vanillin oak. The palate has great texture, is rich, round with some savoury notes & a tight lingering finish. AN EASY DRINKING CLASS ACT!!" Wine Assist, Dan Traucki
