Shiraz * 75cl * Vegan & Organic * 15.0% ABV * Barossa & Eden Valleys, Australia
"A tried and true piece of Barossa winemaking culture," says James Suckling of this esteemed Aussie producer. The Shiraz grapes here come from old vines in both the Barossa and Eden Valleys: the former brings darker notes of tar and chocolate and the latter its own floral, spicy aromas. Together these conjure a wonderfully harmonious package of raspberries, star anise, roasted meats, smoke and scorched earth. This is full-bodied, rich and smooth, and yet possessing a well-integrated backbone of acidity, which will reward the patient. Drink to 2026.
