In a nutshell:
A bit atypical for an Aussie Shiraz. It's cooler climate credentials give it similarities to the reds of the northern Rhône.
Grown in some of the highest vineyards in Australia, at Orange New South Wales, 200 miles west of Sydney. Certainly less boisterous than its South Australian cousins this is a very well balanced wine with a subtly spicy aroma and some liquorice notes. Medium bodied it has a pleasing complexity, good subtle fruit and some gentle rustic, gameyness.
When to drink:
Lighter than your normal Aussie Shiraz, but a lovely wine nonetheless. Bright and thirst quenching this is a good 'drink alone' red. With food it pairs well with charcuterie and cheeses.
