Shiraz Barossa South Australia
A great success story, originally destined for export, Warburn's premium label met with such enthusiastic acclaim within Australia that stocks were snapped up by local enthusiasts the following year.
Warburn maintain a somewhat simplistic approach, they find out what makes wine drinkers happy and make it the best way that they can. That's it. Being an independent winemaker means that Warburn can get their grapes from the best growers. Their own viticultural assets along the Riverland yield the finest harvests but Warburn can call on vineyards further afield to assemble into the most intensely flavoured wines. Shiraz is sourced from a roster of fine Barossa vineyards which can deliver the quality of fruit required to wear the Warburn label. After crushing and vinification, the finished wine is matured twelve months in a selection of American and French oak barrels. Alcohol 14.5%
Medium red purple. The accent is on spice and vibrant plum/ cherry fruit, dark berries and earthy aromas. The palate displays ripe blackberries and spice followed by savoury overtones, all supported by a deft touch of oak. Soft tannins round off a varietally focused and well made wine. A fine balance of flavours and textures which make Warburn such a favourite with people around the world. Everyone knows Shiraz loves lamb, try tagine or Italian style.
