Picarus Wrattonbully Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Wrattonbully is one of those regions that sits in the background and quietly achieves. It’s part of the Limestone Coast, which includes Padthaway and Coonawarra so you can be assured of full bodied reds with an earthy and spicy character. This is evocative of plum and cracked pepper and has a full-bodied, complex character that suggests it’s best drunk by men circling the barbecue whilst poking snags with the tongs.

Winemaker's Notes

A striking aroma of ripe plums, pepper and spice, supported by some elegant and refined oak character. The palate is full and complex with the pronounced spicy, minty and wonderful characteristics for which Wrattonbully has become renowned.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Bright crimson; well-made wine from quality grapes; plum and black cherry fruit, a hint of spice, ripe but fine tannins and vanillan oak all combine.
