Grande Provence Shiraz 2009

Grande Provence Shiraz 2009

A full bodied red wine with ripe blackberry and ripe plum flavours followed by delicate white pepper nuances on the nose and palate. Well integrated oak, soft tannins and an elegant finish, makes for a wonderful tasting experience.

Shiraz can be enjoyed with smoked meats and charcuterie, games dishes and red meat with a lovely pepper sauce.
