Richland Shiraz

richland_shiraz

‘BLOODY GOOD...fantastic wine”. “It’s from Bill

Calabria and his team at a standout Riverina Winery...

their best red under the label...lively, juicy redcurrent

and black plum flavours, is succulent and freshly,

almost velvety, before a clean, refreshing finish. A

delicious quaffer”. PETER FORRESTAL - QUAFF 08

 

WINE INFORMATION

Vintage: 2009

Region: Riverina

Variety: Shiraz

Alcohol: 14.5%

 

TASTING NOTE

Brick red with crimson hues. The Richland Shiraz is a warm, rich approachable wine. Aromas of ripe berry fruit and smoky oak give way to a medium weight wine with a well rounded mid palate. Long soft oak tannins support varietal fruit and spicy black pepper flavours. Excellent to drink now or will gain added complexity with short term cellaring.

 

FOOD ACCOMPANIMENTS

Rosemary scented lamb with balsamic vinegar, penne arrabiata, mushroom and garlic pan fried beef fillet with barbecued polenta.
