Vinification: To make the Fat bastard Shiraz we source wines in the Minervois area near Carcassonne, in the Pezenas sector, and in the north of Nimes. These vineyards present excellent conditions for the Shiraz vines. The stony soil and a perfect microclimate yields mature grapes with a high concentration of color and aromas.
Tasting notes: Rich and dense with complex aromas of blackberries, licorice and vanilla. Tannins are ripe and delicate.
Food Pairings: A perfect match with red meat, lamb, spicy foods and full-bodied cheeses.
FAT bastard Shiraz is a fine example of our long term partnerships with our growers throughout the Occitaine region as well as our deep knowledge of the area's unique climate conditions. Through many years of producing FAT bastard Shiraz, we have come to recognize and appreciate the best parcels and growers in the area.
