Bold, luscious red that's loaded with cinnamon, spice, and everything nice

    • Aussies call this Shiraz the perfect 'winter warmer.' It's full of cinnamon, mocha and LOADS of rich, robust flavor.
    • Adam harvested this Shiraz from exceptionally old vineyards in the Ebenezer and Kalimna sub-regions of Barossa Valley – swear we didn't make those majestic names up! They're the real names of South Australia's magical wine kingdom.

    • This decadent red was meant for a bowl of steaming-hot braised beef with mushrooms - bonus points if you cook with a few drops of the wine!

Aging advice
- Drink now but will cellar for 5+ years under the right conditions.

Serving advice
- Let it breathe! - Decant before serving - Use good quality wine glasses that make you smile (but never drink out of anything you are not prepared to break!) - Drink with people you like, preferably by a nice, cozy fire - or a raging bonfire (it's a personal choice).

Local food match
Great for cold weather drinking - so any hearty casseroles or one-pot winter warmers. My favorite is my mother's beef casserole with lots of winter vegetables and topped with herb and parmesan dumplings.
