Eastside Shiraz 2015, Pikes

£18.95 per bottle

About this wine

Displaying typical dark cherry and blueberry fruit with hints of grilled meat, graphite and some subtle spicy notes, The Eastside Shiraz is one of our favourite Shiraz’s on the Frontier Fine Wine list.  The medium bodied palate has layers of juicy black cherry and blueberry initially, with perhaps a little plum and graphite there too, before fine savoury tannins kick in at the end.  Delicious to drink now and over the next 7 -10 years. A great partner with slow cooked lamb shoulder.

    string(832) "Also known as Syrah, Shiraz was the variety which introduced the world to the concentrated and masculine wines of 1990s’ Australia. Here in the Barossa Valley, Langhorne Creek, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale it produces wines of great density and richness. In South Africa there tends to be more structure and freshness with earthy tannins. It is a variety which alters in the bottle very much as a result of the individual winemaker’s philosophy, as well as reflecting the unique terroir of the estates. Great with oak, it offers lavender, kirsch, black cherry and cured meat aromas and flavours. In its native Northern Rhône it is famous for the wines of Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie, whilst in the New World can lay claim to providing Australia with its two most famous wines; Henschke’s Hill of Grace and Penfold’s Grange."
