Shiraz is a grape that plays a fundamental role in our Australian wine culture. There are many interpretations of this great grape from region to region, producer to producer. Here, we harness the endless blue skies and bright, white light in McLaren Vale to produce a sophisticated wine of harmony and balance.
The 2021 Shiraz is inherently savoury. On the nose, there are meaty notes, leather polish and dried spice. However, as it opens up the fruit profile becomes more apparent, with tart blackberry and purple fig leading the way. Full bodied, without being over the top, this wine has a seriousness to it. The fine tannins provide structure and depth and the aging potential is long.
It is a wine of complexity that will drink beautifully paired with a beef fillet, wrapped in mushroom duxelles and pancetta.
