Laughing Giraffe Shiraz 75cl
"Yer 'avin' a Giraffe, pal!"
South Africa is a rapidly evolving wine producing country & you should know about its Shiraz! South African wines can vary, some winemakers go for chunky, robust versions of Shiraz. Wheras Laughing Giraffe is more restrained, with a mainly fruity result, notes of blackberries & plums; with a spicy, smoky-oaky take.
Vibrant black cherry & currant flavours with crushed black pepper & clover layer this wine in equal amounts of fruit & spice.
Leaner red meat, stew & mildly spicy ethnic foods are best paired with this Shiraz. Brisket, that classic Texas slow cooked BBQ style dish is a perfect accompaniment. Or emphasize the tobacco notes with a smokey cheese like Gruyere or Gouda.
