Variety: 100% Shiraz | Alc: 14.0% | Sugar: 2.90 g/l | TA: 6.09 g/l | pH: 3.72
This powerful Shiraz has a deep onyx purple colouring. The nose is robust and commands attention with ripe blackberries, weathered leather, sweet vanilla and white pepper contributing to the bouquet. The palate is broad and juicy with mouthfuls of dark plums, coffee and supple liquorice tones adding to the complexity. The tannins are firm but accessible and will age beautifully for up to 10 years after vintage.
A bold wine like this can hold up to the intense flavours of slow-roasted barbeque pork. Try spicing with pepper and cumin to bring out the fruitiness in the wine. You can also serve it with rich casseroles, flavorful stews, peppered rib-eye steak or slow roasted shanks.
