Product Description

UTOPIES is a collaboration between Circe and Nowhere Creek, a project which continues our exploration of new world terroir, as well as our love for Shiraz. The name UTOPIES draws from the Greek derivative “ou” (meaning “no”) and “topos” (meaning “place”) and is a nice play on the location name “Nowhere Creek”. Which is literally nowhere. We could point to it on a map but that doesn’t help much. You’ve never been there.

Reviews

“Dense, deep colour; resplendent with the power and depth of its dark/black fruit flavours, licorice and spice, oak and tannins wrapped in folds of the fruit. Balance underwriting a wine with its future measured in decades, not years” 97 Points James Halliday, 2019 Halliday Wine Companion

Tasted over past couple of days. Fantastic wine. Right up my alley for savouriness, spice, indeed sous bois/garrigue, even a pop of comely VA through the wine (that would rattle a few tech wine judges cages) – feels, and I hate saying such things, very European (without being pejorative to Australian wine). Long ribbons of fine, sandy tannin too. Seriously good. 94 right – maybe slightly higher. It’s a belter.
