The Oddbins Take

It is a little-known fact that The Four Growers was The Four Tops’ prog-rock era. The Motown quartet had simply moved past soul and decided that fantasy-themed, synth-driven rock was really more their bag. Whilst they were touring in Australia, they also discovered that they had a knack for making wine. Incredible! This Shiraz really channels the energy and vibrancy of their prog-rock days, with its spicy, peppery sense of place and fresh style.

The Four Growers are four like-minded Australian grape growing families who have joined forces to create wines that offer wines of quality, consistency and verve, at a competitive price. They have invested in a state-of-the-art winery and pick only the finest. The winery is only 8km from the vineyards, meaning that freshness of fruit is preserved at harvest and the grapes can be refrigerated and fermented at low temperatures very quickly.

As growers as well as winemakers, they have control over the varieties they grow, allowing experimentation with small parcels of lesser known varieties that would not be economical for larger wine companies.

Sourced from their vines in the Riverland region of South Australia, this powerful Shiraz is full of ripe plum and blackberry aromas, with a fleshy palate and a very pleasant peppery oak finish.
