Pat Underwood is among the crop of young and exciting producers coming out of Australia. If you're a local Melbournian, chances are you’ve crossed paths as he was a long-time team member of one of the most respected Melbourne wine teams at City Wine Shop. Recently, Pat made the switch into production (as many sommeliers seem to be doing). In 2014, he co-founded Castlemaine’s Boomtown Winemakers Co-operative with friends Jarad Curwood and Tim Sproal, before going on and establishing his own label - Little Reddie, the following year.

In 2017 Pat was lucky enough to gain access to a small parcel of fruit from the esteemed Bannockburn Vineyards in Geelong. He shown his talents once again to give us an undeniably Victiorian Shiraz. This is not a big blockbuster shiraz from the Barossa or a meaty number from the Rhone Valley, this is restrained and elegant. Well worth a look-in!
