Brampton Shiraz 2007

Brampton Shiraz 2007

The rich, savoury character of Shiraz is enhanced by Viognier, adding an aromatic dimension to the wine. Mourvédre 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.
