Food Pairings for Brewery Hill Shiraz
This South Australian Shiraz is much more up-front than the other Naked Wines I have tried so far; the nose reeks of ripe blackcurrant with hints of liquorice and pencil shavings whilst on the palate, there's lots of ripe, juicy fruit but with a degree of restraint and complexity that I have found to be lacking in the antipodean wines of a certain other ubiquitous internet wine retailer I could mention. There's also stewed plums and prunes, a soft-yet-mouthfilling texture and good length. Perfect for when Cambridge is in the grip of an early frost - some warming red sunshine in a glass ! Warming, rich and with some initial complex fruit sweetness (but dry on the finish), this would match well with full-flavoured aged hams, such as iberico or parma, salami and sun-dried tomatoes or slow-roast chicken with roasted root vegetables. I sampled this over a couple of days and with a bit more air, the overt fruit gives way to more sophisticated flavours of plums, prunes and pencil shavings suggesting that it will benefit greatly from some aging.
This Shiraz is packed with full, rich fruit flavors. Ripe dark fruit stands out both on the nose and the palate. Sweet in the mouth with a long, dry finish.
