We love a bit of superstition and to 'knock knock' on wood is a well known method of keeping your luck from going bad, to ward off unlucky consequences, to protect against evil, or to attract good luck. There's no evil in this classic wooded style Barossa Shiraz, just an attractive, pure Aussie wine.
This is a blockbuster Barossa Shiraz with great depth and character. It has a typical deep colour with dense sweet black berry fruits on the nose. The palette has a lovely savoury almost meaty character with hints of black pepper, meat and oak. It is bright, juicy and fresh, which is really typical of the vintage.
The long aging in oak means it's really well integrated and allows the fruit to shine. Long and rich with good acidity, and toasty oak on the finish. Drinking well now, beneath the ripe fruit is good structure and should you wish this will age really well for a decade.
Food matching is easy, just buy some quality red meat, don't mess with it and enjoy a perfect marriage.
