COLOUR: Medium to deep red.
NOSE: Lifted aromas of blackcurrants and dark cherries with rich spice and subtle oak.
PALATE: A medium-bodied palate rich with red berry flavours, supported by subtle vanillin oak and leading in to a soft generous finish.
A wet winter was followed by a windy, cooler and
wetter than average spring. Along with cool nights in
early summer, this markedly slowed ripening and
delayed harvest by about 4 weeks. Hot weather in mid
February and early March progressed ripening, after
which nights were cool through to end of harvest.
Overall wine quality was good, with bright fruit
Matured for four months with American and French oak.
Bilyara Shiraz is great with lamb burgers with beetroot relish, or beef, Shiraz and rosemary pie.
Best enjoyed while young and fresh.
