Royal Phoenix Shiraz, 2017

Description: The sun filled Goulburn Valley region produces intense varietal fruit with excellent structure. The Ulupna vineyard is situated on a small, distinctive site with the cooling influence of the Murray River and the alluvial soils, which are steeped in Red Gum and Peppercorn tree relics. As well as reflecting the landscape that it comes from, it is also a reflection of the people who made it. Long time residents in Australia and Europe, the Ulupna team brings European awareness and sensitivities into an Australian context.

Grape Variety & Vineyard: 100% Shiraz from Ulupna’s own vineyard in the Goulburn Valley. Central Victoria

Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 15%, TA: 6.27g/L, pH: 3.52

Eye: Medium ruby, with a little purple.

Nose: Herbal notes with red and white cherries, and white plums, leading directly into the palate.

Palate: Charred plum with chocolate, light toast, raspberries, and pepper. Lots of rich, ripe fruit, both cooked and fresh, with a sprinkling of Sichuan peppercorn. Alcohol is hot on the finish, and the tannins only lightly drying.

Food Matches: Will go well with Venison in Dark Chocolate Sauce, or Steak with Blue Vein Cheese, or especially good with Grilled Pork Neck with Spicy Tamarind Sauce. Will also stand on its own.
