Shorter days, colder nights, thicker clothes, orange leaves, and big reds. Shiraz is the perfect red wine for the autumnal transition. Like no other wine it wraps round you with its inky flavour giving you a warming sense of fulfilment. Here are our top 3 Shiraz from the New World, the perfect transitional wines we think you should know about…
BVS Shiraz Peter Lehmann, Barossa Valley
To fans of Australian wine, Shiraz is synonymous with Barossa Valley, whose warm climate has developed its own trademark fleshy, spicy style of Shiraz. A bold, spicy yet straightforward Shiraz, this wine is the perfect accompaniment to you first Autumn roast lunch.
Mister Shiraz, Colchagua Valley
An exclusive bottling for Majestic, this wine represents a deliberate departure from the ultra-modern, fruit-centric Chilean style of Shiraz, and showcases Chile’s ability to produce a more traditional, robust, spicy, yet unmistakably New World style.
DMZ Syrah De Morgenzon, Stellenbosch
This youthful and expressive wine comes from young vines in De Morgenzon’s own estate, grown on its weathered granite soils. An abundance of bright and youthful plum and berry fruit give this wine a lively appeal. Share with friends this Autumn but make sure to keep a few bottles back for yourself.
