A seriously juicy... drop!

    • Tim Smith’s ’The Kick’ Shiraz is sure to impress! Get ready for lashings of opulent lush fruit that speaks directly of its postcode.

    • A premium shiraz that is undeniably Barossa - aged in older oak it’s beautifully juicy, with a fine structure and palate weight.  It has all the great attributes of Barossa Shiraz - lifted plummy berry fruits with a touch of cedary-like oak aromas - yummm!

    • With only 500 cases in existence this is sure to disappear from the Naked shelves in the twinkling of an Angel eye.

Ageing advice
At least until dinner time usually.. With the structure this wine has-it really could be a mid term cellaring wine. However-on a personal level, I actually like drinking Barossa Shiraz young.

Serving advice
I do like to have screw cap wines opened for an hour or so before drinking: no need for any fancy decanting.

Local food match
Thick cut Porterhouse steak sauteé a bunch of Bok Choy dressed with the juice of the steak.
