A multi-regional South Australian shiraz made by four of this country's best winemakers

“A very attractive approachable young wine with bright purple juicy fruit, a sprinkling of spice, lovely vitality and fresh tangy tannins running along the tongue.”
Max Allen, Australian Financial Review, Feb 2019

“The aroma makes you fall in love with the wine in an instant: red roses, orange peel, Turkish Delight, cherry pie. The wine is deliciously medium-weight with an ultra-supple mid-palate. It is lively, expressive and intensely flavoured. Silky smooth tannins. Limited quantities. Sold by the six-pack. Get in quick.”
Score: 95 ★★★★★
Toni Patterson, The Real Review, March 2019

“Get this in your glass and you won’t be disappointed. A medium-bodied delight. Scents of red fruits, blackcurrants, touches of mulberry and sweet baking spices. Cherry ripe looms large in the mouth. Dangerously smooth and bouncing on its toes, it waltzes across the mouth with ease only before some exotic spices chime in hanging long on a persistent and moreish finish. A wine destined to warm your soul on a cool night with a hearty meal or with a square of dark chocolate comfortably wedged in the side of the mouth. Great stuff ladies – well done!”
Steve Leszczynski, Q Wine, March 2019

This premium shiraz has been sourced from selected parcels in Eden Valley, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale & Coonawarra – all South Australian regions. Let us tell you all about it…


COLOUR: It’s a vibrant crimson. Soooo purdy.

NOSE: Love your dark fruits? You’ll love taking a nice long inhale of this. Blackcurrants, warm spices and fresh red berries abound, with a hint of mocha just to make your heart race a little faster.

PALATE: There’s both an elegance and complexity here, with multiple layers. It starts with those luscious berry fruits, then moves through hints of freshly ground coffee and finishes with a light dusting of soft velvety tannins.

CELLARING POTENTIAL: You want to save this for later? Woah! You clearly have more willpower than us. But if you’re the cellaring type we can tell you that this beauty will age gracefully over the next 8 – 10 years.

What exactly is the point of this wine?

Since 2015, the Australian Women in Wine Awards has been championing for gender equality in the wine industry and celebrating the achievements of women in wine.

But there’s so much more we want to do. And we need the funds to do it.

So, some of our favourite winemakers got together and made this wine. And then some of our favourite companies and suppliers came to the party and donated their time, services and products to help bring it to market.

Now we just need YOU! If you’re a wine lover, we want you to buy yourself (and, if we can be so bold, all your friends too) a 6-pack of this exceptional wine. Not just because you want to support women in wine – which we know you do, or you wouldn’t even be here reading this right now – but because it’s a damn fine drop that we’re super proud of. We only love top quality vino around here. And we know you do too.

While we may do other wines in the future under the hear me roar label, this particular wine – from these premium vineyards, made by this combination of exceptional, industry leading winemakers – will never be repeated. So once it’s gone, it’s gone forever. Don’t miss out on your chance to make history!
