Mostly (83%) Grampians fruit, though there are contributions from Heathcote, Swan Hill and Bendigo. This wine is often a happy hunting ground for value, but this release is a particularly good version of it. It's alive with peppery spice and fluid with plum-shot flavour, and while it's medium in weight (at most) it feels silken and satisfying. The spice notes here, wow, they're gorgeous.

An incredible Shiraz – sour, peppery and amazingly aromatic with a green peppercorn note atop ridiculously ripe fruit. Crunchy tannins form the perfect platform on which the glorious blackberry, liquorice, rhubarb and cherry notes cavort. 70% of this wine is estate fruit, so that goes some way to explaining why...
Review
This is a delightfully fragrant and spicy little shiraz from the Grampians. soft red fruit with a scented violet-like character. The palate is medium weight and beautifully balanced displaying vibrant red fruit, a little spice and a dab of oak.
Review
An incredible wine. I know it is the cheapie in the range, but suspend disbelief until you have tasted it. This is a sour, peppery and amazingly aromatic Shiraz with a green theme (green peppercorn) atop ridiculously ripe fruit. With no 2020 made, this vintage follows on from the superb 2019, and it means that Billi Billi, for the first time in my memory, has played a blinder in back-to-back releases. Crunchy tannins form the perfect platform on which the glorious blackberry, liquorice, rhubarb, and cherry notes cavort. 70% of this wine is estate fruit, so that goes some way to answering why this wine has such an elite flavour.
Review
From Victoria, the fruit for this shiraz produces lively and delicious black berry character with a hint of spice. Simple, yet delicious.
Review
The Billi Billi wines, named after a stream on the property, are everyday drinking wines. Made with 70% estate fruit, the 2021 Shiraz is easy drinking with fragrant rhubarb, plum, violet, and pepper notes and crunchy acidity.
