Fat Bastard Shiraz Vin de Pays d'Oc 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Dark ruby in color with an intense nose of black pepper and black cherry notes. Rich on the palate with a robust body and complex aromas. Soft, round tannins with flavors of black olives, liquorice and plum. A perfect match with red meat, lamb, spicy foods and full-bodied cheeses.

Grape variety: 100% ShirazVinification: To make the Fat bastard Shiraz we source wines in the Minervois area near Carcassonne, in the Pezenas sector, and in the north of Nimes. These vineyards present excellent conditions for the Shiraz vines. The stony soil and a perfect microclimate yields mature grapes with a high concentration of color and aromas.Tasting Notes: Rich and dense with complex aromas of blackberries, licorice and vanilla. Tannins are ripe and delicate.Food Pairings: A perfect match with red meat, lamb, spicy foods and full-bodied cheeses. - Winery
