New Era Barrel Select Shiraz 2016

New Era Vineyards has a mantra of only producing the best of the best wines this reputation of only producing quality small batch wines that are value for money while also guiding our customer through a unique wine experience.  If there is a wine produced that does not meet our high standards of the New Era brand this wine will be sold off on the bulk wine and export markets.

Below I have collated a list of wine accolades, reviews and medals from wine shows around Australia over the years. We only send wines to a small number respected wine shows and reviewers.
