Named "Syrah" in Europe, South America, and New Zealand but "Shiraz" in Australia - Shiraz is Australia's well-known and most widely planted variety.
Hailing from the South-eastern region of France, this varietal is grown in practically every wine region in Australia - a testament to its adaptable nature.
In the Yarra Valley, our Shiraz is classed as a cool climate and boasts a distinctive warm spice and peppery flavour, revered by Shiraz enthusiasts.
Price is for a case of 12 Cleanskins.
Black plum, tart boysenberry, and red liquorice aromas combine with subtle white pepper, tobacco, and smokey notes.
A warm, medium body with flavours of dark berries and caramelised fig, hints of mocha, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Fine tannins and soft vanillin oak lead to a lingering finish.
Cellaring potential of 3-5 years.
"Destemmed into open-top vats and plunged daily for the 1st week before being left on skins for a further 19 days. Matured in French barrels, 30% new. Medium ruby. Very ripe on the nose with dark plum and blackberry fruit, as well as a little oak-derived cinnamon and nutmeg. Ripe and juicy, with subtle, fine tannins in support, this is already drinking well straight out of the gate. For short- to medium-term drinking." Phillip Rich
