Pinot Noir Shiraz (Australia)
- THE REGION: MURRAY DARLING, AUSTRALIA
- Murray Darling is named for two of Australian’s longest rivers, which run through the vast region and provide vital irrigation. The region is hot and dry, with long sunny days balanced by cool nights. The loamy and sandy soils are unique to the Murray River system and nourish strong vines. Together the heat, rivers and soils produce grapes which create soft and flavourful wines.
- Pinot Noir and Shiraz may seem like an odd couple, but this uniquely Australian blend has a noble history. It is currently making a major resurgence. The wine opens with mixed berry, floral and soft spice aromas. A vibrant palate of sour cherry and red fruit flavours with undertones of dark plum, blueberry, light licorice and spice follow. Silky tannins and bright acidity complete this juicy and energetic blend.
- Pairs well with pork tenderloin with forest mushroom sauce.
