Dolan joins Wyndham to boost Shiraz clout

Published:  25 July, 2008

Nigel Dolan, the award winning winemaker, has joined Wyndham Estate as chief winemaker.

The appointment underlines Wyndham Estate's commitment to the future development of the winery's Shiraz credentials as well as its plans to introduce the new George Wyndham range into the UK market.

Dolan has previously been named as Barossa Winemaker of the Year, South Australian Red Winemaker of the Year and was a finalist in the Qantas Australian Winemaker of the Year.

He said: "The Wyndham Estate team has an increasing focus on premium Shiraz and it will come as no surprise to anyone who knows me that Shiraz has always been at the core of my winemaking passion.

"It is Shiraz's great adaptability and regional nuance that makes it a great canvas to work with - and this role gives me the creative and directive freedom to explore all sorts of opportunities."
