Country: Australia, Barossa Valley
Tasting Notes: A seamless integration highlighting the best attributes from each variety in this red blend. A spectrum of capsicum, weight and tannin from the Shiraz combines with the generous juicy raspberry flavours the Grenache provides, along with rose petal and floral-like spice compliments of the Touriga Nacional.
Varietal: Blend of Shiraz (50%) Grenache (41%) and Touriga Nacional (9%).
Pairing: The Grenache adds some spicy complexity to the Shiraz which will suit meaty dishes such as sticky BBQ pork spare ribs, roast duck or pork and grilled lamb kebabs. A great match as well with corn fritters, warming casseroles and beef goulash. Try this approachable red blend with Thai beef mussaman curry or a Tandoori chicken.
