Dark fruit and blueberry flavours, vanilla and spiced cinnamon barrel aromas also noticeable. Slightly on the sweet and alcoholic side which lends a heaviness to the structure, would likely pair well with an Aussie steak meal

Nice, drinkable table wine. Not something I'd bring to a house, but for the price, it's a nice bottle of Shiraz to keep on hand for any night of the week. A little bitter on the finish, but that goes away by the second glass.

Australian shiraz from a region known for quality shiraz. Hints of plum and sweet pipe tobacco, a nice smooth balance, and nicely dry.

Just balanced thread of Shiraz pepper and velvet consistency on the tongue. Will age very well, but very good now also.
