Bobbie Burns Shiraz 2013

A Rutherglen icon – showing the true power of the Rutherglen shiraz fruit with the tannin structure for longevity. For more than forty years our Bobbie Burns Shiraz has enjoyed a reputation for being of consistently high quality.

Tasting Notes

Deep dark red with purple hues.  The nose has real depth, almost brooding, dark plums and blackberry perfectly integrated with the more elegant characters of black pepper and aniseed, a hint of spicy oak sitting in the background.  This wine is full bodied with mouth filling plum and mulberry fruit yet the palate is beautifully structured with layers of fine tannin and complementary characters of liquorice ironstone and cocoa.

Food Pairing

Enjoy now with a Moroccan spice rubbed fillet of beef or over time with slow braised beef or lamb.
