Water 2 Wine’s Riverina Shiraz, from the Darlington Point area of Australia, is a dry, full-bodied, spicy red. The up-front aromatics reflect typical dark fruit notes of blackberry, cherry, and plum, complimented by restrained black pepper which becomes more pronounced with age. In the background, subtle layers of toast and vanilla from the oak. Tannins are in gentle harmony with the overall impression and create a well defined yet delicate frame for the wine.
This wine is great with big, bold meals that can stand up to its power. Try it with steak, braised lamb shanks, pizza, chili con carne, or pasta with spicy tomato sauce.
