James Irvine , King of Australian Merlot


In 1993, our 1987 and 1988 James Irvine Grand Merlot captured the Worlds attention by famously achieving two seemingly impossible feats.

Irvine Wines was established back in 1983 by a visionary team who succeeded in putting Australian Merlot at the forefront of the World’s very best. Irvine is now re-emerging even stronger, led by a team that combines world-class Barossa winemaking and viticulture traditions with a track record of excellence in innovation.Irvine Wines are one of the largest privately-owned premium grape growers for Four generations of Miles’ family expertise ensures the fruit they grow for the highest quality and harvested with precise timing.

Irvine’s six vineyards are the most esteemed Barossa and Eden Valley regions. These prime regions are home to some of the world’s oldest and finest Shiraz and Riesling plantations.

More than 30 years estate vines. Irvine and merlot are names that have been, are now, and will surely remain, linked in love and war-James Halliday 2020 Wine Companion

The Grand Merlot was previously judged World’s Best Merlot in Switzerland, against Petrus, Antinori and Mondavi.

"Merlot specialist James Irvine fashions this lavishly oaked effort from Eden Valley fruit. Aged in French oak, it offers up a seductive, toasty perfume, copious fruit as well as wood result in loads of toast and vanilla characteristics in this full-throttle and opulent”

The heart and soul of the Barossa lives in our lovingly nurtured Estate Vineyard wines. Cool climate, ancient soils, pristine fruit, slower ripening, fuller flavours: this wine is testament to our commitment to excellence and craftsmanship.
