21 Vintages of Shiraz

Peos Estate, nestled amongst the picturesque hills of Manjimup, has long been associated with this stunning region. The Peos family have called Manjimup home for over 90 years.

Relocating from Macedonia, it was the rich agricultural soils renowned throughout the Manjimup region that attracted the Peos family.

A love of living off the land saw the Peos family establish many agricultural ventures, with potatoes and avocados proving the most successful.

A family history of grape growing and wine making in Macedonia eventually led to the establishment of the vineyard in 1996.

Vic, John, Con and Chris planted several varieties suited to this cool-climate southwest region. Today, Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay are the hero varieties for Peos Estate, all having achieved many accolades and show successes over the years.

This year, Peos Estate are celebrating 21 years since their first shiraz and are also celebrating multiple wins at the recent Southern Forests & Valleys Wine Show. Peos Estate was awarded top honours for the following wines:

Four Aces 2020 Pinot Noir
- Best Pinot Noir
- Best Red Wine

Four Aces 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon
- Best Cabernet Sauvignon

Four Kings 2019 Shiraz
- Best Shiraz

The Suits 2019 Shiraz Cabernet
- Best Blended Red

Manjimup as a wine region was the new kid on the block, however this wine, made by the talented Virginia Willcock, received the highest of praise, and this success helped establish the area as a premium cool climate grape growing region.

As the vines have matured, with their roots firmly claiming their place in this prized region, the wines have also developed a pure regionality and distinct profile. The Estate now produces four Shiraz wines, with the Suits label recently introduced to the winery portfolio. This wine showcases the best of the Estate, and it is no surprise that Shiraz is the dominant player in this exceptional wine.

With four shiraz labels to taste and discover, there is bound to be one to suit every palette.

Four Jacks – a plush, fruit-driven wine with bright red berries and a soft, elegant structure for enjoying in its youth

Four Kings – a delightful combination of red and blue berries, with a subtle layer of spice and structural tannins, this wine can be enjoyed now or cellared to develop more complex nuances

Four Aces – a more sophisticated wine with layers of bramble fruits, white pepper and stunning French oak spice resulting in a long, structural wine that will reward careful cellaring

The Suits – barrel selection from the best batches of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is full of rich fruit, elegant tannins and oak spice. A wine to put away and forget about for up to another 21 years
