Banrock Station White Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

We are staring to see a few more of these style wines around and for those who think Shiraz is red, well your not wrong, but it’s just the skins that give it the colour. So this is the juice of Shiraz with just a tinge of colour because it spent a fraction of time sitting on skins. What you get in the glass is more like a Rosé, so you can expect a vibrant nose of red berry fruits as well as citrus and spice. The palate is all about intense berry concentration, a creamy mouthfeel, soft tannin weight and fresh finish. It needs to be chilled and served with an Indian curry or Asia style whole baked snapper.

Winemaker's Notes

The Banrock Station White Shiraz encompasses fresh lifted strawberry, cherry and citrus aromas, with hints of spice. Exhibiting concentrated berry flavours with a rich creamy palate, this wine displays soft tannins and a lingering fresh acid finish.

Food Pairing: Enjoy with a warm Thai beef salad, or a spicy Asian stir fry.

Very pale, not much to smell, but pleasingly soft, round and sweetish in the mouth.

I wouldn't expect anything called 'white shiraz' to be this good. Gently floral aromas, delicate salmon pink colour, tight, fine and focused yet with attractive creaminess and zesty acidity.
