Shiraz 2017, Fairview

£16.95 per bottle

About this wine

The 2016 Fairview Shiraz displays notes of blackcurrant, savoury spice and rosemary on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with fruity flavours of spiced plums complemented by a velvety, luscious mouthfeel and finishes with well structured, elegant tannins.  Drinking well now, sip this perfect midweek bottle alongside barbecued meats – a bold wine like this can even hold up to the intense flavours of slow-roasted barbecue pork.

    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."
