Story: Shiraz is synonymous with Australia and is grown in most regions from the warmest regions where it produces full-bodied, ripe and plummy wines, to cool regions where a spicy, peppery, medium-bodied wine is the result.
Vintage: The 2018 growing season started slowly, but warmer weather eventually helped to speed things up. Fruit set throughout the region was good and the low rainfall and warm weather from January to April resulted in great sugar development, while a cooler than average March offered ideal night temperatures for colour and flavour development.
Nose: The nose is vibrant and fruit forward with plums, mulberries and a hint of dustiness.
Palate: The palate is beautifully smooth with notes of plums and a touch of vanillin oak, followed by an elegant, lingering finish.
Food Pairings: Try this wine with a grass fed scotch fillet steak and grilled vegetables on the barbeque.
Cellaring: Drink now to 2026
