Food Pairings for Two Hands Shiraz Blend Barossa Valley Brave Faces
Deep black in colour with a slight red hue. Lifted red fruit aromas, strawberries and cream, notes of potpourri, especially roses, coupled with spice, dried leaves and an underlying meatiness. The palate is concentrated, yet restrained. Following on from the new blend of 2008 vintage, the 2009 Brave Faces is the second vintage dominated by Grenache, showing a point of difference from Shiraz dominated portfolio. The soft red fruits from the Grenache open the experience with the dense dark Shiraz fruits roll past the mid-palate with subtle spiciness and floral flavours with the red fruits reappearing with the Mataro’s underlying meaty flavours, notes of bracken and fine savoury tannins to finish.
