Wits End 'Atlas' Shiraz 2018

Special Price $15.00 Regular Price $20.00
An aromatic shiraz with bright red and blue fruits, spice and lip-smacking acidity. Dangerously easy to drink, this is an excellent everyday drinking shiraz packed with quality red and blue fruit and just enough tannin to bring it into balance. Perfect with pizza and good enough not to be T-boned by a T-bone steak.

Wits End, produced by Chalk Hill, have been making quality booze sine 1964 from a couple of hundred acres of quality vineyard. They have steadily moved their house style towards production of bright fruited wines with sparing use of oak and good acidity balanced with tannins but not too much tannins. The net result allows them to show off the brilliant concentration of fruit they create in the vineyard.

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).
