Shiraz Vs. Cabernet: the Faceoffening

Unlike the film Face/Off in which the central protagonists successfully swap faces and identities, you are never going to mistake a Shiraz for a Cab, even if you swap the labels. Unlike Cage and Travolta in the film they play nicely too… by themselves and even when blended together.

    Shiraz Vs. Cabernet: The Faceoffening

    Shiraz and Cab – it’s not really a face off or a fight. Different though they are, these 2 varieties really work well together - alone and when blended, plus both are arguably more finely honed character actors than Cage and Travolta… here’s the goss on each of them…

    Zilzie Ferghana Langhorne Creek, McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley Shiraz 2019
    Lush with deep, rich black fruits, cedar, liquorice, cigar box and plentiful fine tannins! An exceptional premium Shiraz that works wonderfully now with meat and will improve for up to a decade.

    Curtis Limited McLaren Vale Shiraz 2016
    96pts Kim Brebach, 96pts Sam Kim, 94pts James Halliday
    Rippingly good, fine boned yet full bodied McLaren Vale Shiraz. We reckon this one will improve with cellaring for 20 years, such is its structure and power of fruit. Lots of black and blue fruits here, along with aristocratic spindles of cedary oak.

    Zilzie Regional Reserve Coonawarra Cabernet 2018
    Gold Medal
    A beautifully mid weight, gold winning Coonawarra Cabernet. Juicy red fruits, mint and blackcurrants create a mouthwatering effect, bolstered as they are by ever so slightly bolshy acidity – the finish buttoned down primly with fine tannins.

    Penna Lane Clare Valley Cabernet 2017
    93pts Kim Brebach
    This is a stunning varietal Cabernet built for the long haul. An hour or two of breathing sees a beautiful perfume emerge, which coalesces with rich fruits to form a deep palate packed with violet, blackcurrant, earth and tomato leaf. Perfect with a big lump of protein. Drink any time over the next 15 years.
