TASTING NOTE: This wine features expansive Shiraz character, with generous dark and roasted fruit tones alongside well-managed oak and evocative spice. Pair this real value with braised beef or a hearty mushroom stew. Decant before serving, as the natural-winemaking techniques used by Shanahans can result in the presence of some sediment. Drink till 2029+. [The Australian Wine Showcase did not include a tasting note.] Score - 95 (Australian Wine Showcase) Price $ 21.95
