Shiraz "The Aunts"
This product is sold out
The Hunter valley has historically been an excellent
region for Shiraz & Semillon. The shiraz tends to be
more savoury, rustic, sweet leather & tobacco notes
with dried fruit particularly dried date or prune. Medium
weight, food friendly wines, depicting syrah from
a southern Rhone vineyard in a warm year. Generally
very complex flavours, which makes it very interesting.
2006 Mereea Park The Aunts Shiraz will be
matched very well to a hearty beef/lamb casserole.
Light to medium crimson-purple; this may be the least of the three Individual Vineyard Shiraz of Meerea Park, but it's no slouch; its juicy medium-bodied palate is driven by its red cherry and plum fruit, oak very much a junior partner.
