Story: The quintessential Australian red, this Pertaringa Shiraz offers everything that has made this variety famous down under.
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 displays notes of plums, pepper and a hint of dark cherries.
Palate: The palate is elegant with great flavours of plums, cherries and black pepper, finishing delightfully smooth and lingering.
Food Pairings: A beautifully versatile food wine, this wine will go just as well with a summer barbeque as it would with a hearty beef stew in winter.
Cellaring: Drink now to 2026
