Estate grown Shiraz was picked as each block reached optimum ripeness and acidity. Fermented and cared by our winemaking team and blended in this harmonious style.
The 2018 vintage had a warmer and much dryer season than the 2017. This imparted concentration and added complexity. Shiraz from South Australia is a classic style and the Byrne Estate Shiraz displays these hallmarks of fruit, tannin and balanced ripeness.
Colour Deep cherry red with intense dark hues.
Nose Bright blackberry notes with a hint of toasted vanillin oak.
A full flavoured, medium bodied style of shiraz with dark red berry fruit richness and a smooth tannin structure. Delivering length and a subtle complexity with cedar French oak influence, the shiraz showcases the age of our low-yielding mature vines.
Barbequed red meats are ideal to match with the deep flavours of Shiraz as well as spicy pasta dishes with tomato based sauces, roasted meat and root vegetables.
