This is your desert-island Shiraz
It’s no wonder this smooth and vibrant Shiraz has scooped up 92%+ scores back-to-back! Sam’s signature red is like stealing a slice of hot berry pie cooling on the window sill – you know, the kind that’s always off-limits... but so decadently delicious.
Sam loves nothing more than taking plump, juicy grapes from the vineyard and watching them come to life in the winery. Your support gave him the firepower to use three different fermenters (!) for this big red – building endless layers of supple richness like the passionate flavor scientist he is.
Your Aussie winemaker goes all out on the barbie for this sultry Shiraz. His favorite is a “tender piece of fillet right off the pit barrel” – Oz speak for beef tenderloin. It’s just as tasty with a juicy burger or some smoky pulled pork!
I like to drink this wine when it is relatively young and fruit forward, so over the next year or two. But I know there are some people who will enjoy cellaring this wine and drinking it with 5 or 7 years age when it will be more savoury and complex.
Serve at a coolish room temperature say 16-18C
Local food match
We are big fans of the barbecue at home, including having a US made 'Pit Barrel Cooker'. If I could drink this wine with anything, it would be a tender piece of eye fillet steak off the Pit Barrel with some hickory for smoke!
