An iconic Barossa Shiraz

    • Sourced from just two single-blocks in the renowned Light Pass sub-region of the Barossa Valley, Red by Caroline Dunn Black Barossa Shiraz is next level outstanding!

    • Powerful, yet graceful this shiraz is overflowing with concentrated plump black brambly fruits, dark chocolatey and black spicey aromas, beautifully balanced with warm, stony, mineral hints and flavours that just go on and on and on…!

    • An iconic Barossa variety made by an iconic winemaker at an exceptional Angel-exclusive price. With just 800 cases in existence you’re going to have to get your skates on to avoid disappointment.

Ageing advice
On release, this bright, modern wine features generous fruit and a smooth, textural palate with a fine tannin line throughout. With careful medium to long term ageing it will develop an integrated complexity and softening of the tannins. Drinking at its peak within 3 to 5 years, it will age well for a decade or more.

Serving advice
While not essential to this wine’s enjoyment, allowing it to breathe for 30 minutes before drinking will more fully express its natural character. Serve at room temperature, or in warm weather allow to chill for 30 minutes in the fridge.

Local food match
Fettucine with roast vegetables and black olive tapenade, Wagyu and black pepper sausages, or chargrilled beef fillet with crispy leeks.
