Wine Region: Barossa Valley, Australia
Grape: Mataro, Syrah/Shiraz
Deep purple garnet. Whiff of vanilla to start, with dark forest fruits to follow some woody spice notes. Starts generous but finishes leaner with some nice soft tannin. Food friendly shiraz as befits a pouring wine ready to pair with a range of dishes.
