Shiraz is the great Australian red. Styles vary from the big, bold wines of the Barossa to the refined and elegant styles of Heathcote and the Upper Yarra Valley. The 2016 Yarra Valley Shiraz has been made to be very approachable, easy-drinking and food-friendly.
This wine is made from fruit from Coldstream in the Central Yarra Valley. It has a deep purple red colour and a lifted aroma of black fruits, spice and truffle. In the mouth it is warm and long with sweet fruit, medium weight, rich texture and fine tannins at the finish. It should continue to gain complexity and softness for at least five years.
This wine is made to drink while eating pasta, pizza, around a BBQ or just on its own. The soft palate and fine tannins are a feature of this very approachable wine.
