Family Reserve Shiraz 2016 6x75cl

  • 75cl bottle

A dark brooding wine on both the bouquet and palate. The depth of flavour is astounding and the dark plums on the mid-palate give way to a long finish with the slightest hint of white pepper. With both savoury and fruit notes this wine is a very versatile wine to enjoy with food, but be assured the mouth filling, supple tannin structure will ensure that one will be well rewarded by cellaring this wine carefully for a few years before enjoying!


Shiraz thrives in Mediterranean climates and the fruit showed excellent concentration whilst retaining freshness and elegance.


The 2016Švintage was not an easy one! The growing season was exceptionally dry with drought having a major impact on the crops. Despite the harvest being earlier than normal, conditions had cooled enough to allow later-ripening grapes a chance to catch up. Overall, the harvest was smaller than normal, but we made good wines, despite the challenges.


Grapes were hand harvested early in the morning, de-stemmed and sorted before being transferred to stainless steel tank for fermentation. The perfect structure in the wine was achieved through a combination of open and closed pump overs and careful monitoring to ensure the best balance possible. Maturation took place for 20 months in 100% new French oak barrels

Enjoy with:

  • Grilled and Roasted Red Meats
  • Casseroles/Stews
  • Mature Strong Cheeses
Perfect with a roast leg of lamb & potatoes
