Description: Classic Australian Shiraz. A wine with a strong personality. Although masculine and audacious in attitude, it preserves the elegant refinement expressed through ‘lightness’ of the European reds. A balanced and smooth wine.
Grape Variety & Vineyard: 100% Shiraz from Ulupna’s own vineyard in the Goulburn Valley, Central Victoria
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 14.5%, TA 6.37 g/L, pH: 3.35
Eye: Medium ruby with purple hints.
Nose: Raspberries (both fresh and confectionary), cherries, liquorice, and light white pepper, opening up to light spice and more red cherries while the confectionary fades into the background.
Palate: Raspberries and cherries, with lolly flavours on the finish.
Food Matches: Mediterranean flavours such as puttanesca sauce, or a barbecue.
