A full-bodied red with terrific structure and depth. Judicious use of oak wraps around blackberries and some dark spice notes. A pleasantly bitter, dry finish. Another classic red from Australia.

Shiraz Mourvèdre food pairings: char-grilled steak, prime rib, osso buco, beef brisket.

Reviews and Ratings

Darlene Myers - CAPS Student rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

I was BBQ'ing when I opened this beauty. I was having a steak and felt the Syrah Mourvedre combination would stand up to it. While I was grilling I was captivated by how smooth this full bodied wine was. With aromas of fruit and white pepper, it was perfectly balanced and delicious. Dark fruits, pepper and spice, with a hint of chocolate on the palate allows this wine to be enjoyed by itself or with food.
A magical blend of 81% Shiraz and 19% Mourvèdre that pushes all the right buttons. Black licorice, black fruit and black pepper on the nose. The palate is rich and generous and oh-so-tasty. Spicy and flavourful. This is a real conversation starter. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, July 2013

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
