A Rutherglen icon – showing the true power of the Rutherglen shiraz fruit with the tannin structure for longevity. For more than forty years our Bobbie Burns Shiraz has enjoyed a reputation for being of consistently high quality.
100% Syrah from Victoria, Australia, fermented in stainless steel tank, macerated 7 days, and aged 12 months in 550L French and American Oak. The Syrah comes from the Bobbie Burns Vineyard grown on red, sandy-loam soils sitting at 577' above sea level. The first harvest of this wine was in 1970 so they've been making it for quite some time.
Deep dark red with purple hues. The nose has real depth, almost brooding, dark plums and blackberry perfectly integrated with the more elegant characters of black pepper and aniseed, a hint of spicy oak sitting in the background. This wine is full bodied with mouth filling plum and mulberry fruit yet the palate is beautifully structured with layers of fine tannin and complementary characters of liquorice ironstone and cocoa.
Enjoy now with a Moroccan spice rubbed fillet of beef or over time with slow braised beef or lamb.
