AUSTRALIAN SHIRAZ     $121

The grape that was made for Down Under – its hot climate perfect for bringing out the best traits in this popular grape varietal.

The aged version retains the core fruit flavours of plums, cherries and blackberries, but gains extra polish. Pair this Shiraz with flavourful meals!
