If you are after a very easy drinking, quaffable red wine then this South Australian Shiraz 2021 is perfect. It has great subtle oak characters and good up front fruit flavours of blackberry and spice. This is the sort of wine you could have every night with dinner and not break the bank! sensational value at $14.00 per bottle. Score 90/100 WA Cellars Silver medal.
What is Shiraz
The French and Americans call it Syrah, we call it Shiraz. A versatile variety and well suited to a range of climates and can be found in most of the grape growing regions of Australia.
In hot climates (such as the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale of South Australia), Shiraz is more consistently full-bodied with softer tannin, jammier fruit and spice notes of liquorice, anise and earthy leather. In many regions, the acidity and tannin levels of Shiraz allows the wines produced from the grape to have favourable aging potential.
About The Producer
The first vines at this winery were planted in the 1930s in Clare Valley and produce their superb top tier range of wines. As South Australia is phylloxera free and didn’t suffer the scourge of this vineyard disease which wiped out most of the world’s vineyards, these are some of the older vines still in commercial use in the world.
In 1963, the founders of the winery purchased the Devlin’s Pound property near Overland Corner in South Australia and planted the limestone-based vineyard to a range of grape varieties, most notably Shiraz, Cabernet and Chardonnay which have all received Gold medals for their premium wine quality. They also now own vineyards in Scott’s Creek in South Australian Riverland region from which the fruit for this wine was grown.
