|DON'T look beyond matching this
one with a hearty Winter's beef pie.
GREAT CHOICE WITH WINTER TIME'S PIE
Medium-bodied and full of cool climate red berry flavours and spice, it's a great example of what can come out of high altitude regions such as Orange, and particularly so in the hands of makers like Peter who is a more than dab hand with the variety.
"It's exactly what I want from our Shiraz," Peter says, adding that at the same time the variety all but makes itself in the vineyard. "It requires minimal intervention in the winery, and is fairly consistent year in and year out," he says. "The optimal result is a wine like this one that's a straight-up delivery of the succulent red fruits and spice of cold climate, high country Shiraz."
And interestingly while it bursts with that juicy, cool climate red fruits and spice, it has a lovely soft mouth-filling texture, and at $28 makes for a great companion at this time of year with a hearty beef pie.
