Buy Shiraz Wines Online
Shiraz grapes, also known as Syrah, are dark-skinned grapes used for producing red wines. It is the flagship grape variety of Australia and thus is the most widely planted in most Australian vineyards. Wine made from Shiraz grapes is in great demand all around the world. Having medium acidity and tannin content, Shiraz wines are darker than Cabernet Sauvignon wines and contain high levels of health stimulating antioxidants. These wines are jammy and juicy, contain flavours of blueberry, blackberry and boysenberry accompanied with notes of bacon fat, smoke, allspice, olive, pepper, clove, liquorice, mint, vanilla, cured meat, herbs, tobacco and vanilla. These strong, full-bodied wines have intensely-fruity flavours that lead to a clean and long finish with a peppery and spicy aftertaste. Shiraz wines taste best when paired with cheese burgers, peppery barbeques, spiced meats, roasted vegetables, Beef Wellington, lamb korma and lentils with smoked ham hock.
