Murray Street Red Label Shiraz 2015

Special Price $30.00 Regular Price $35.00
A mouthwatering cellared Barossa Shiraz which is packed with rich black and blue fruits. We found black fruits, spice, chocolate, cedar and a gloriously velvety texture. Great length and an excellent match with meat and hard cheeses. Maybe even a Taleggio.

Just 60km northeast of Adelaide, the Barossa Valley is one of Australia's oldest wine regions. Warm and dry, it is renowned for producing the distinctive Barossa Shiraz, a full-bodied red with notes of chocolate and spice. The valleys and sloping hills create several temperature ranges. But in summer, take it from us: it's just plain hot. The soils range from clay and loam in the cooler areas to the classically South Australian sand and red-brown loam in the valleys.

Shiraz (which is essentially Syrah) is a dark-skinned grape grown throughout the world and used primarily to produce powerful red wines. Wines made from Syrah are often powerfully flavoured and full-bodied. The variety produces wines with a wide range of flavor notes, depending on the climate and soils where it is grown, as well as other viticultural practices chosen. Aroma characters can range from violets to berries (usually dark as opposed to red), chocolate, espresso and black pepper.

Just 60km northeast of Adelaide, the Barossa Valley is one of Australia's oldest wine regions. Warm and dry, it is renowned for producing the distinctive Barossa Shiraz, a full-bodied red with notes of chocolate and spice. The valleys and sloping hills create several temperature ranges. But in summer, take it from us: it's just plain hot.

The soils range from clay and loam in the cooler areas to the classically South Australian sand and red-brown loam in the valleys. Irrigation is often required, but with water supply an increasing problem, many growers are practicing dryland farming, relying on what falls from the sky and clings from night fog. Couple this with the number of very old vines in the region (which produce limited quantities of grapes), and the result is fruit with deeply concentrated flavour which quickly ripen. A great foundation for some of the world's most acclaimed reds.

Darryl's Pulled Pork Chili

Winter is well and truly here and with it comes my favorite cooking season. Ask my wife and she’ll tell you I go a little crazy around this time and almost everything in our house must be cooked low and slow. First my disclaimer, I’m not a mathlete or a particularly good time keeper so amounts, measures and times may vary, I learnt by trial and error and usually adhere to the rule of never cook without a glass of vino. So the moral is to taste, taste, taste! Unfortunately another side effect to this is I often forget to take a pretty picture which is exactly what happened with this first recipe. Secondly I’m a stirrer and prodder and I just have to know what’s going on inside the pot so these new fangled slow cookers just don’t work for me just a good old fashioned cast iron casserole pot instead. Thirdly music, the right music for the right dish! A Sunday arvo slow cook with Curtis

Shiraz (which is essentially Syrah) is a dark-skinned grape grown throughout the world and used primarily to produce powerful red wines.

Wines made from Syrah are often powerfully flavoured and full-bodied. The variety produces wines with a wide range of flavor notes, depending on the climate and soils where it is grown, as well as other viticultural practices chosen. Aroma characters can range from violets to berries (usually dark as opposed to red), chocolate, espresso and black pepper. No one aroma can be called "typical" though blackberry and pepper are often noticed. With time in the bottle these "primary" notes are moderated and then supplemented with earthy or savory "tertiary" notes such as leather and truffle.

"Secondary" flavor and aroma notes are those associated with several things, generally winemakers' practices (such as oak barrel and yeast regimes).

History

It is called Syrah in its country of origin, France, as well as in the rest of
