2016 White Label Shiraz
A dense red colour is the first indication that this Shiraz is a serious wine. The nose shows cool climate pepper and spices with dark berry fruit to match in power. The palate is as we intended in that it exhibits mid weight elegance yet powerful in flavour. Dark plums and hints of liquorice through an incredibly long finish. The oak treatment in this wine imparts complexity but in no way overpowers the natural Shiraz fruit. Balance, finesse and poise best describes this cool climate beauty.
Shiraz by nature is a powerful creature and commands equally powerful food. Red meat dishes such as braised lamb shanks or beef burgundy pair well. Pay regard to the layers of flavours in this wine and match the wines creativity with equally considered dishes.
