About the Wine

The Highgate Organic Shiraz – 92 pts – Mike Bennie – is rich and generous, all booze-soaked berries and tobacco woody notes, a bit of spice in there too but so much of this wine is about the ripe fruit and wood seasoning.


  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 7 cloves garlic
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup vinegar
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon-style prepared mustard
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (2 pound) tri-tip steak



  1. Place onion, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, soy sauce, rosemary, mustard, salt, and pepper into the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth. Place steak in a large resealable plastic bag. Pour marinade over steaks, seal, and refrigerate for about 3 hours.
  2. Preheat the grill for high heat.
  3. Brush grill grate with oil. Discard marinade, and place steak on the prepared grill. Cook for 7 minutes per side, or less for a rarer stake.
  4. Serve with the 2016 Highgate Organic Shiraz!
