THE RIVERS SHIRAZ
Australia | ABV 13.5%
The dry, sunny and warm climate which surrounds Australia’s Murray/Darling River system, provides a collision of perfect grape growing conditions. Sun to ripen. Ancient soils to provide character. Water to sustain. This allows yields to be managed so that the ideal blend of ripeness and concentration is achieved. The Rivers varietals deliver excellent flavours, varietal character and approachability to make them the perfect house pour wines.
Shiraz arrived in South Australia in 1839 after being collected from Europe by James Busby in 1832. Today it is one of the most common grapes in Australia, used either as a single varietal wine or blended creating generally powerful, full-flavoured wines. Our 2017 The Rivers Shiraz is made in a lighter, easy-drinking style.
