Heritage Shiraz 2009

Just inhale to enjoy the wide range of flavor notes in this deep purple wine, a blend of the heritage Australian Shiraz and the French Hermitage Syrah grapes that we have planted on our Estate Vineyard.

This deep, dense, long-living wine is made exclusively from Shiraz/Syrah as intense as many a Rhône Hermitage, showing rich, plumb and dark liquorice-chocolate on the nose with a slight tobacco and lingering toffee flavor on the palate, all the while with soft background notes of black pepper.

Plenty of tannin to foster aging, the wine is still not too aggressive to be enjoyed immediately, but will definitely benefit from some more time in the bottle.

This smooth, rich wine will work well with most foods allowing you to add your own special blend of herbs and spices. Image a roasted pork loin well seasoned with garlic and onions. Try this with bratwurst, spicy lamb dishes and cold meats with chutney but for a special treat pair it with BarBQ pork spare ribs with a smokey BarBQ sauce.
