Mr Borio’s Shiraz 2019, Simonsig

£14.50 per bottle

About this wine

Simonsig Mr Borio’s Shiraz 2019 shows perfumed aromas of sour cherry, raspberry juice, and floral hints with a sweet vanilla spice. Although this is a medium bodied wine, it comes across as light and elegant. The wine is full of flavour and has an exciting juiciness to it.

Medium bodied and richly flavoured dry red having spent 17 months in 225L French oak barrels (15% 2nd fill; 35% 3rd fill; 50% older barrels).

Ageing potential: Perfect for drinking now, but further aging until 3 to 5 years from vintage date would be highly rewarded.

Food pairing: Pairs well with mushrooms stuffed with ham or bacon, burgers, cottage pie, venison pie, bbq/char grilled ribs or chops, and of course a meat lover’s Pizza.

Alcohol: 13.09% ABV

    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."
