Monterey Shiraz

Monterey Shiraz Wine Details

Description: This wine was handcrafted and aged for 9 months in new and seasoned French oak barrels. It was produced from vines of Australian origin, grown one mountain range away from the Pacific ocean where they are protected from coastal fog, yet benefit from the ocean's cooling effect. The wine is dry with voluptuous fruit and spice. It can benefit from long-term cellaring. Fantastic with lamb. Non-malolactic!

Varietal Definition
Alternate name for the french Syrah clone grape grown in Australia and responsible for very big red wines that are not quite as intense in flavor as the french Rhone versions.
