Spring into the new season with a gem of a Shiraz from the sunny Barossa Valley
The image of the blazing sun shining bright on vineyard foothills rimmed by lines of date palm trees paints the perfect picture of Australia’s Barossa Valley. It's one of the oldest and most famous wine regions in the country, whose crumbly clay soils and warm, dry climate deliver truly world class shiraz.
One of the top recommends from the region is Barossa Valley Estate Shiraz, a complex and commanding wine that captures the distinctive elegance, finesse and vibrant fruit flavours of the Barossa. A unique terroir combined with the skilled craft and style of Barossa Valley Estate's wine-maker has brought to life a shiraz that expresses notes of black plum and fresh blueberry, hints of exotic spice, and is brimming with ripe tannins. 12 months in French oak barrels develops depth of flavour and subtle texture in the wine.
And, we're not the only ones who've discovered this gem, with its gold medal line-up from wine lovers and wine professionals alike, the latest being a superb 93 Points and Gold Medal at the International Wine Competition in San Francisco.
With every delightful drop capturing the eternal summer of Barossa Valley, dust off the BBQ, fire up the grill and spring for this vibrant Shiraz. For the foodies, this wine pairs perfectly with rare roast beef, fresh fettuccini topped with rich lamb ragu, aged cheeses such as cheddar, and peppery, spicy dishes (think Mexican).
