Description

Philip Shaw has been making wine for 56 years and has twice been named International Winemaker of the Year and Australian Winemaker of the Year. The wines are estate grown and made at Koomooloo Vineyard. Sitting in one of the coolest and highest growing regions in Australia, Orange. The vineyard is unique for Australia with over 10 passes by hand, with all the grapes being hand sorted in the winery.


Merlot is well suited to the cool climate conditions of the Orange region, producing consistent crops of high quality fruit in the Koomooloo vineyard.  The Conductor, part of Philip Shaw’s Character Series, has a medium colour with a bright red hue and smells of rich clear berry fruits.  The complex aromatics are layered with strong varietal fruit overriding the supportive vanilla from barrel age. This 100% Merlot is mouth filling with the bright varietal flavours well supported by fine fruit tannins.


The Conductor is part of Philip Shaw’s ‘Character’ series which are named after the main qualities he feels you need to make a successful vigneron.  Other wines in the range include The Dreamer (Viognier), The Architect (Chardonnay), The Wirewalker (Pinot Noir), and last but not least The Idiot (Shiraz)!
