Premium Margaret River Shiraz

    • Margaret River’s superior growing conditions meant that it was deliberately chosen back in the 60s as a premium winegrowing region.

    • Get ready for a top-shelf Shiraz of rare excellence - the quality of the fruit sourced from the north of ‘Margs’ is next level. Partial barrel fermentation has lead to an intensely flavoured red with complex briar characters flowing right the way through.

    • Your glass will fill with a wine that’s deep red and purple, delivering tantalising dark berries and spiciness with each sip, expressing both oak and fruit beautifully. Some whole bunches were added along the way for their woody stems, giving the wine a sensational textured lift. Stock up before the rest of the world catches on to how truly outstanding Margaret River Shiraz really is.

Ageing advice
Drinking perfectly now, and will evolve over the next 5 years.

Serving advice
Yes, open with food in front of you - I didn't spend a year and a half to make trouble for you! Seriously, you can open it and enjoy. It's modern style and won't collapse before your eyes so probably would be fine after a day with one of those gadgets to purge the headspace in the bottle.

Local food match
Grilled lamb what else, maybe with a few burnt bits here and there. Perhaps even no pink but not overdone but you've got to be good on the barby!
