WINE INTEGRITY ABOVE EVERYTHING
Expatrius Vineyard owner Eoin O'Shea sets out the vision: Expatrius Vineyards are not a bulk wine producer. We focus on highly selective cultivation and crop with passion and care. This ultimately yields small amounts of premium wine. With the skill of our highly accomplished and experienced winemaker, Luc Desbonnets, we aim to produce wines that we hope will be appreciated by those in search of something special, wines evocative of heritage and traditions that span centuries, but still carrying their own unique signature. The integrity of our wine is everything to us, and that means not being held hostage to a rigid annual commercial cycle. We are willing to take tough decisions to make sure standards are not compromised. For example, in 2011 we chose not to produce an Expatrius Syrah or Expatrius Blend of 8 as we did not feel the vintage conditions in that year had the potential to produce an ultra-premium wine.
We also have gift boxes available for the Expatrius Syrah 2010

Expatrius Syrah 2010
A single grape wine that has been described as uncannily evocative of the great Cote Rotie and St Joseph wines of France. A rich and elegant syrah. Drink 2013 – 2023.

Expatrius Syrah 2013
Expatrius Advenus 2013
A single grape wine. A more French styled aromatic white with some lees and oak complexity and a textural focus that has seamless balance. Best after a couple of years bottle aging and great with fresh foods.
