Princeland Watch Limestone Coast Shiraz 2015
Region: Limestone Coast, SA
Princeland remembers part of our past as this was the proposed name for a new state between Victoria and South Australia. For Glug customers Princeland is about the fabulous value we find from the vast region that encompasses Coonawarra, Wrattonbully, Padthaway and another dozen or so districts.
A must for a serious consumer is to visit Coonawarra as it does have a hallowed feeling. The beauty of the reds of Coonawarra meant numerous other areas were planted with vines.
These of course do not have the same reputation as Coonawarra and we find beautiful, full bodied reds, in our view identical to Coonawarra can be purchased at low prices. For Shiraz you need to go to vineyards that are warmer thus we do not favour coastal regions. Padthaway and Bordertown, the limestone plateau east of Naracoorte, and a few other spots is where you find the Shiraz gold and at good prices.
