A decadent Californian twist on Penfolds Grange
- Daryl makes this bold, sexy, fruity and super-smooth wine from the estate vineyard he planted in Barossa Valley.
- That region is home to some of Australia’s greatest Shiraz vineyards - and it's where Daryl decided to plant some of the only Zinfandel grapes into Australia. So this wine is a unique cross of the flagship grapes of Oz and Cali, made by one of the best winemakers to straddle both continents.
- This blend is really unique and it's rare to find these two varieties married into a holy union in the bottle. But we gotta say... the marriage really works!
It's really lovely now. I love the fresh pepper and spice and forward fruit. It will get better with a few years of age as the tannins and youthful acidity will soften and integrate more.
In really hot weather, serve a little chilled. Otherwise it's ready to just open and serve straight out of the bottle. Helps if there is a wine glass!
Local food match
This is a wine that works well with so many types of food. From red meat to salmon and everything between. I love this wine with pizza or burgers. It would also be an awesome red wine match to any spicy or gamey foods and it's great with BBQ.
