Two Sisters Wine Co. Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016

Special Price $60.00 Regular Price $70.00
The 2015 edition was a stunner, earning the following praise from wine writer Kim Brebach … 96++points. Penfolds would charge $200 for a wine like this. The 2016 is even better, offering intense black and blue fruits, spice and perfectly integrated oak. Brilliant drinking now and over the next 10-15.

Two Sisters’ Wine has a strong and proud family history dating back to 1843 when the family’s ancestor, Christian Auricht was amongst the first settlers to Langmeil in the Barossa Valley after escaping religious persecution in Hamburg, Germany. The family still owns the homestead, barn and orchard block of Christian Auricht who was instrumental in the Barossa Valley's wine history, establishing one of the Barossa’s first trading villages on the banks of the North Para River, and planting what is now believed to be the oldest surviving Shiraz vineyard in the world. The family has grown grapes in the Barossa for 6 generations, with David Braunack the current custodian. Grapes were sold until 2013 to the likes of Peter Lehmann, Penfolds, Maverick, Colonial Estate and Barossa Valley Estates.

This week we sipped on not one, not two but three bottles of Mr Riggs Montepulciano wine. Mr Riggs is a James Halliday 5 star rated winery which is a pretty amazing achievement in itself. You know when you crack open any wine from these guys we are talking about a glass of seriously good wine and this one didn't disappoint either!

Right, we need two bottles of wine for this recipe. One to cook with and one to drink. They say that you should only cook with what you drink but in my opinion, I defo don't use what I drink to cook. Granted, if I was in a high-end restaurant, I'd probably be refining my cooking a lot more but the truth is I ain't so let's focus on the drinking wine.

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).
