About the wine

Victoria's premium Shiraz region, bottled for you!
  • Hand grown and picked by Tait Hamilton whose family vineyard is on the prestige soils of Heathcote. Tait is a hardworking and careful grower, and he has a site which is an incredible gift from nature!
  • Your glass will be boldly coloured with youthful magenta on the rim. Scrumptious layers of plum, blackberries, chocolate and raisins will sing along with earthy, peppery hints. Tannins are ripe and plush, lending texture to round out each powerful, flavour packed slurp!
  • The low pH of Tait's fruit is associated with bright colour and 'stable' wine which can almost make itself with minimal intervention - the challenge is not messing up the natural gift. The wine is full bodied with warmth from ripe fruit and subsequent high alcohol. Time spent in new an one year old oak barrels has given it a moreish, smokey finish. Go on, treat yourself to the tip-top of Naked's shelves!

Best before
I happily drink this wine as a youngster - I love the combination of plushness and brightness on the palate, the intensity of flavour, and the balance. But with its crazy low pH, and the great intensity of flavour this wine has an impressive ability to age.

Serving advice
Best served at 16-18C

Food match
We have a great butcher in Avenel, and ideally we'd have a piece of aged beef from Scotty to go with this Shiraz. But in truth it's pretty versatile wine - any red meat, and perhaps follow on with a hard cheese instead of dessert.
