Syrah / Shiraz

750 ML


Product Description

Another delicious Woop Woop Shiraz: the fourth vintage and tipped to be the best one yet! A wet winter, mild sunny spring followed by a warm dry summer… we couldnt have asked for more perfect conditions for a long, late ripening period. And the result? Rich, ripe, and chock full of quintessential Aussie character. Its deep in colour with great intensity, bursting with blackberry fruit juice, blueberry jam and masses of clean varietal Shiraz fruit. Its well balanced with black liquorice, pepper and spice giving tremendous flavour and length. It weighs in at 15% alcohol! This wine was matured in French and American oak.

Region: Australia

Region Description:

In the past few decades Australia’s wine industry has transformed itself into one of the most technologically advanced in the world. A combination of a generally warm, dry climate and a cultural affinity for creating, rather than following, tradition has resulted in wines that are soft and pleasant to drink from an early age. They are the epitome of user-friendliness. Australia’s wine regions are mainly in the southern, cooler part of the country, clustered mainly in the state of Victoria, the southern part of South Australia and the cooler parts of New South Wales. Syrah, or Shiraz as it is known there, is the top grape, followed by Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Semillon. The wines are generally listed with the name of their grape variety, which must constitute at least 85 percent of the wine. Although Australia’s winemaking region is vast, most labels indicate only that their contents come from South Eastern Australia. Flavor is indicated by the variety of grape used to make the wine. Australia’s classification system is generally lax when it comes to quality and labeling. Some bottles indicate a specific state of origin (New South Wales, Victoria, or South Australia), or a region within a state, but these smaller zones are still being decided.
