Tasting Notes

Bright, aromatic and juicy on the nose with just a touch of naughty bacon fat. True to the varietal, the tiny proportion of Malbec in this blend gives a flowery perfume. This vintage is the brightest, most dangerously drinkable Shiraz to date due to its fine, bright fruit and soft silky elegance.

Producer details

Quintessentially Australian, this range offers consistent quality, hugely appealing, commercial wine styles that have gained a loyal following. Reflecting the skill and experience in seeking out the very best of regional Australia, Boutinot's wines capture ideal climatic conditions and pure varietal definition. They've done a great deal of work on improving the sourcing of these wines in recent years to ensure they get great consistency and quality year in, year out and this is really starting to show now.

In the vineyard

Our Shiraz is sourced from Langhorne Creek in South Australia, noted for producing some of Australia's finest Shiraz.

In the winery

This Shiraz is sourced from ancient Victorian soils in order to achieve a wine with greater finesse, purity and structure as well as typical eucalyptus flavours and saline finish associated with the area. Picked at night and crushed within an hour of picking before being sent to the fermentation tanks. The Shiraz grapes were fermented in temperature-controlled tanks maintained at 22 - 25ºC to avoid extracting any harsh tannins, with the fermentations pumped over to extract good colour. 20% of the final blend is barrel aged. The winemaker also added 5% Malbec at the end of the whole process - a sneaky technique that gives a mulberry fruit twist on the finish.

Food Recommendations

Drink with Moroccan lamb tagine, roast vegetables and hard cheeses.
