Tahbilk Shiraz 2017
Tahbilk Shiraz is sourced from nearly 30 hectares of vines planted at various times from the 1930s through the early 2000s. Made using traditional Tahbilk techniques; fermentation takes place in 150 year plus open vats, before maturation in French and American oak for 18 months prior to bottling. The resultant releases are noted as being fruit driven wines of much flavour and substance, proven over the years to develop added character when cellared. Varietally expressive with ample plum and blackberry fruits, there is a warm earth and spicy savouriness that immediately appeals with a backbone of fine, opulent tannins and a rich, persistent finish. Serve with tender lamb shanks in a hearty tomato gravy with creamy mash.
