BackgroundThe Plan was simple: to take outstanding Australian wine to the world and in doing so, become internationally recognized as a winery of great distinction. Set in 1880, four generations have weaved their passion and dedication into one of Australia's most dedicated winemaking families: The McGuigans.

 

Today, the McGuigan family still follows this master plan for hand-crafting exceptional, vibrant wines. The Plan is a range of uniquely Australian wines sourced from select dry-grown and irrigated vineyard sites throughout South-Eastern Australia. The wines are vibrant and fruit-driven with a spine of elegant acidity...all part of The Plan.
VinificationThe Shiraz fruit for this wine was sourced from our vineyards in South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales. The parcels of fruit were treated individually, fermented and matured, before being blended to create this outstanding wine.
ColorIntense, rich scarlet.
NoseA combination of plum and blackberry aromas with spice, pepper and cinnamon.
PalateWell-rounded and fruity with rich flavors of ripe plum, blackberry jam and spices balanced with vanilla and caramel flavors. The resulting wine is deep and intense.
