The Nugan Estate Matriarch

The Nugan family history spans three generations and more than 80 years of determination and passion. This benchmark McLaren Vale Shiraz is a tribute to the drive and vision of the Matriarch of the Nugan Family, Michelle Carruthers Nugan. Michelle took over the family business in 1986 when her husband died unexpectedly. Through her entrepreneurial spirit and strength of character, she led the family business through a renaissance transforming it into the Australian success story it is today. She is an inspiration to her family having instilled in us a vision for the future.

Winemakers Comments

The Matriarch is made from low yielding Shiraz vines grown at Matthew Nugan’s super premium vineyard in McLaren Vale, South Australia. It has been lovingly handcrafted to highlight the very best regional characteristics and matured in new American and French oak hogsheads prior to bottling. The result is an outstanding, rich and full flavoured Shiraz that will continue to improve with careful cellaring.

Wine & Food Match

We recommend that the Matriarch Shiraz be decanted before serving with Beef Wellington and steamed broccolini.
