Brampton Shiraz 2006

2008 Old Mutual Trophy Awards - Silver Medal (85/100)
2008 Decanter Awards - Silver Medal

The rich, savoury character of Shiraz is enhanced by Viognier, adding an aromatic dimension to the wine. The Mourvèdre component brings an amount of wild berry & spice to this blend. Earth, pepper-spice and hints of dark chocolate support the richness of ripe fruit.

Due to accessible tannin structure, this wine will complement a variety of fine dishes.
