2018 White Label Shiraz

$38.00

dark cherry  |  blackberry  |  black olive  |  pepper

750ml

A cool climate shiraz proving powerful flavour can carry itself with finesse. With all the flavours you love in shiraz like plum, cherry, and a little mocha; our cooler climate leads to a more refined style with softer tannin and weight than you see in shiraz from warmer parts of Australia.

Devour beef brisket, roast lamb or tomato-based dishes with this wine, with the ripeness to match a big flavour, but enough restraint not to override it.
