Say hello to the second vintage of our Single Vineyard Bloody Shiraz Gin; tiny in quantity, large in flavour and complexity.
Four Pillars x Yarra Yering BLOODY UNDERHILL SHIRAZ GIN is back and dare we say, even better. This single vineyard release is the combination of two of the best known Shiraz products from the Yarra Valley: one the region’s finest Shiraz vineyard, Yarra Yering’s Underhill and the other, our Bloody Shiraz Gin. Intense, dark and slightly bitter it is truly a gin drink like no other.
As we did last year, we steeped whole bunches of the Underhill fruit in Rare Dry Gin which had by this point spent two years ageing in Yarra Yering Dry Red barrels. After last year’s release, Cam topped up the barrels starting a solera which has bought more complexity and richness, and dry fruit and gingery characteristics to the 2022 vintage.
After the best part of three months, Cam gently pressed the gin and juice, mixing in more barrel-aged gin and similar to last year, a small amount of organic gentian for additional bitterness and mouthfeel.
The marriage of our Rare Dry Gin botanicals with the most delicious Shiraz fruit on the planet. No added sugar. None. Ever.
