$270.00 $162.00

McLaren Vale – 60% Shiraz, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon

 

THE WINE

A classic interpretation of the quintessential red blend of Australia. The McLaren Vale region has a long history of growing Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, and blends of the two varieties have made some of the very best red wines in Australia’s winemaking history. A vivid deep purple with striking bright highlights. The Shiraz offers blackberries and plums and fills out the palate, and the Cabernet Sauvignon gives lifted dark berries, mint chocolate, and an elegant tannin structure. Raspberry fruit lingers through the velvety and full-bodied palate, complemented by smoky vanilla oak.

Description

THE STORY

Early settlers of McLaren Vale often needed bullocks to move heavy loads, and on one occasion bullocks towing a cart carrying the coffin of a deceased man lost control when traversing a steep hill. The coffin slid off the cart, killing the driver in the process, becoming one of the extremely rare situations of a dead man killing the living.

FOOD PAIRING

A classic rich eggplant parmigiana is an ideal match to this wine, though it pairs well with a wide spectrum of foods including roast meats (lamb, beef or pork) with plenty of roasted vegetables, or simply some nice sausages or good cuts of beef on the BBQ.
