is a big, badass wine.

Rise up against ordinary flavors and domesticated wines. Break free. Take a stand for concentrated pleasure and life on the edge. Rich, full-bodied Insurrection comes from Australia, where people decide for themselves and no one apologizes for living full throttle.

The Wine

Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon

Appellation: SE Australia (Langhorne Creek and Padthaway)
Alcohol: 15.5%
Aging: 64% American Oak, 36% French Oak

Grapes were left on the vine as long as possible, maximizing fruit flavors for a wine that is intensely rich and ripe. Night harvesting maintained freshness, rotary fermentation enhanced power and medium oak treatment added toast and spice.

Big, bold flavors envelop the palate with layers of ripe red fruit, plum and chocolate. Shiraz offers berries and spice, while Cabernet Sauvignon delivers power and structure. Relentless waves of strong, rich flavor resolve into a long, smooth finish.

The Winemaker

Insurrection Wines

Born in Sydney, Australia, Insurrection Winemaker Steve Roden had his own wine cellar up and running by the time he was 18. He earned his stripes working for the top hot shot wineries that put Australia’s great wines on the map. Part of a renowned team of globally recognized winemakers, Steve made iconic, big flavored wines that started it all: quality Australian wines revered in the United States to go the long haul.

Steve’s experience Down Under has given him an unwavering appreciation for wines with power, flavor and drinkability—and for finding just the right Australian grapes to deliver them.
