Nugan Estate Alfredo Dried Grape Shiraz 75cl
"When a young Alfredo emigrated from Spain in 1940, he had a clear vision of his family’s new life in Australia. Today, his legacy sees the Nugan family established as one of Australia’s most successful agricultural enterprises. This limited release collection of premium wines are a tribute to his vision and the passion he instilled in us, his family, to pursue his ideals of outstanding quality and service.This Dried Grape Shiraz is sourced from our family’s premium vineyards in the Riverina and McLaren Vale in Australia. Once harvested, a select parcel of this Shiraz was dried to create flavour intensity and concentration. After fermentation, the wine remained on its skins for a further five days further improving its richness before maturation in American and French oak for 12 months resulting in a hand crafted wine of quality."
Dense garnet with crimson hue. Attractive aromas of cherry and plum with dark chocolate, earth and herbaceous notes. Warm, rich and complex palate layered with black cherry with savoury nuances and smooth velvety tannins.
FOOD MATCH: Wonderful match with a variety of foods; from pasta to slow cooked meat dishes and aged cheeses. But if you really want to appreciate this wine, do as the Romans do, and partner it to your favourite Italian dish such as Osso Buco or Veal Milanese.
