The Oddbins Take

There is something very romantic about a family legacy. An object or tradition that can be laid down for future generations to appreciate. Such legacies come in numerous forms; if your surname is Trump you may have a tradition of putting your name on buildings and claiming you inherited far less money from your father than you actually did. Most people however, have an old pocket watch entrusted to them on their 18th birthday that they treasure until sometime in their 40s when they go on the Antiques Roadshow and discover that their gran actually got the pocket watch out of a happy meal. “Dam it Gran, you showed me up on national television!”

The McPherson family have a much better legacy, since 1968 they have been making magnificent wine in Victoria, Australia as a family, and grapes from some of their best plots of land go to make wines named after different family members. The Andrew McPherson is a beautifully weighted Shiraz, rich with ripe flavours of blackberries, plums and a hint of spice. The wine is complex yet approachable with incredible fruit intensity and a silky texture. If you were deliberating whether to leave your ancestors a gaudy tower in the middle of New York or a sublimely made Shiraz, we’d recommend the Shiraz.
