Shiraz has found a home in the coastal regions of South Australia.
Long, warm summers ensure the grapes achieve full fruit and tannin
ripeness, resulting in expressive aromas, a velvety texture, and
a finish that keeps going.
Bunches are harvested and brought to the winery where they are sorted and de-stemmed prior to a temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel. Cooler fermentation temperatures preserve Shiraz’s characteristic flesh black fruit aromas and better manage tannin extraction. This creates an easy drinking, approachable style of red wine suitable for backyard bbq or simple porch sipping.
Inky purple in color with aromas of spicy dark fruit and red plums. The wine is sumptuously round and juicy with subtle notes of vanilla on the finish. Enjoy with savory short ribs, hearty beef stews or a juicy cheeseburger off the grill.

I've just ordered a case of wines from 90+ as a first time customer. So far I've had a 3-star German "Steep Slope" Riesling that didn't taste or smell much like Riesling to me (I lived on a vineyard in Germany's Mosel region when I was in my 20s) although it was a very refreshing wine when chilled and it would be a good choice to serve at a BBQ with shrimp and salmon on the grill; a 3-star Argentina Malbec which was was too tart for my tastes (though I really like Malbec from Argentina); and this Australian Shiraz, which I'm giving 5 stars. Luscious, sumptuous, as much pleasure to swirl in the glass and breathe in as it is to drink.
