Shiraz is produced from the same grape as Syrah. It’s a classy, spicy, hearty red which boasts a pleasing vanilla finish, a smoky scent and flavour notes of dark berry, black cherry and mocha, among others. Although it’s a full-bodied wine and one of the darker and heavier types, Shiraz red wine is also of the easy drinking varieties – a bottle of this definitely won’t last long once opened!
Shiraz wine goes with lots of food, so you can’t really go wrong if you’re planning to serve it with dinner. It’s especially tasty with BBQ food. A large glass of Shiraz with a generous portion of slow-cooked sticky ribs is always a winner. It’s also fantastic with grilled meats, steak, sausages and thick, tender stews, and as a partner to pasta dishes.
Our Barefoot Shiraz is a delight to drink, and one of our most popular red wines. If you haven’t already tried it, it’s highly recommended!2
