The 2019 Margan BC4 Shiraz is the second release of the Broke Fordwich producer's unique old vine shiraz project, started by Andrew Margan in 2011 as the result of a search for more diversity in his shiraz vineyards. "I asked some mates who owned heritage vineyards in Pokolbin for some buds to graft over over a 30-hectare block of 50-year-old shiraz vines" said Margan. He ended up grafting six different clones on the root-stocks, which are now producing some brilliant results. The 2019 BC4 is a bright, fruit-forward shiraz, available now.
