Churchview St Johns Limited Release - Shiraz
This Churchview, St Johns Limited Release wine is made from hand picked Viognier and “Old block” Shiraz grapes. The brilliant Ruby Red coloured wine is matured in French oak barrigues and hogs heads for 16 months. The Intense aromas of red fruits, cherries, cranberries, with a liquorice coated raspberry confectionary sweetness. Layers of spice, cashew nuts and tobacco dance together with the subtle apricot lift. On the palate this is a lovely soft and round wine. A generous mid pallet of the red fruits and spice dominate the mouthfeel. The fine tannins create a length of succulence and balance.
Australia's most popular grape varietal, Shiraz is full-bodied with high alcohol, and vibrant berry and plum on both the nose and palate. Australia's hot summers and cooler winters impart a complexity and structure that collects well and is a worldwide favorite.
Food Suggestions: Enjoy this wine with flavorful spicy foods from steak, to mediterranean and asian cuisines.
