Erin Eyes Clare Valley Shiraz
This wine could well be called 'when Irish eyes are smiling', as it is allegedly named after a lady the family forebearer fell for. It's quite an elegant 14% alcohol wine that shows lots of spice on the nose and palate, along with red fruits and licks of earthiness and cedar. The palate is remarkably easy going and smashable, with the spices continuing the ride, with fine tannins, poised acidity, and a smooth finish. Great with roast lamb over the next 4 to 6-years.
Matured in American and French oak barriques for 24 months before final blending and bottling. Rich and bold in colour, flavour and rounded middle palate.Plenty of white pepper and cloves spices. Great fine tannins add to the length and soft finish of this big wine. Beautiful spicy style that drinks well with any dish from fish to chicken to red meat.
