Backyard Blue McLaren Vale Shiraz
This shiraz epitomizes boutique craftsmanship, combining intense natural fruit character with the complexity of the winemaker’s art. The colour is a wonderful vibrant scarlet with deep crimson hues. The bouquet is a whirlwind of mulberry, cedar and peppery spice leading to a robust palate structure that has obvious French oak supporting the concentrated berry fruit and firm tannin grip.
Beyond the initial impact the flavours unfold to reveal layers of herbs, spice, licorice and chocolate. Enjoy with the heartiest of meals, thick, rare rib eye steak and pepper sauce would be an ideal match or hide it in the cellar for a decade.
