McWilliam’s Off the Press Shiraz

Tuesday April 18, 1950: Just off the press, The Riverina has sweltered under another heatwave, however, the McWilliam’s family are celebrating their first vintage of the emerging new grape variety, Shiraz. The McWilliam’s brothers (pictured above) are about to launch a program for their Sydney wine bars to promote the new varietal. They are seen above enjoying a drop of the newest member of the McWilliam’s family; a spicy bold Shiraz.

Inspired by the iconic stories of the McWilliam’s family throughout the decades and grown from the rich soils of New South Wales, this wine portrays one family’s passion for the art of winemaking.
