This magnificent Shiraz was produced using grapes harvested from Reilly’s vineyards in the Clare Valley region. The Shiraz variety gives hearty, spicy reds while its wine is one of the deepest, darkest reds with intense flavour and excellent longevity.
This Shiraz wine is a deep vibrant colour, a softly-styled full-bodied red wine with a long, toasty and vanillin finish. Aromas of intense ripe fruit and cassis with a light hint of florals greet the nose. The palate is treated to complex layers of blackberry and licorice coupled with fruit sweetness and spice. Subtle tannins and the influence of light oak are well-balanced in this appealing style.
This versatile wine pairs well with foods such as Chili Colorado (a spiced Mexican stew), brisket (slow-cooked BBQ), grilled lamb, hard cheeses, and lentils with smoked ham hock.
