Shiraz () Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2021 and older


Rich dark colour. A bouquet of spice, white pepper, red cherry and old school musk sweets fuses with red berries. The palate is surprisingly rich and structured with flavours of dark black fruit and cinnamon wrapped up in soft, comforting oak hints and a caress of vanilla beans. Really long and luscious with a full mouth feel.

Shiraz, an ancient cultivar with its roots in Syria, is versatile enough to pair across a huge spectrum of dishes from oysters to game to spicy Middle Eastern cuisine. In fact, it loves spices and even chillies. This is a big wine that can take on anything you dish up with it. An absolute winner with red meats and game, yet elegant enough to be enjoyed with white meats such as duck or chicken, or even scallops.
