Australian wine has seen a dramatic dip in popularity here in the States in recent years. But let me tell you, there’s still some crazy good juice coming from “down under” these days. This week we have a real hedonist's delight for you, the 2014 Wakefield Jaraman Shiraz. This luscious red is packed with flavor. Like, seriously busting at the seams with juicy goodness. The nose is replete with layers of indulgent fruit and spice. Hints of vanilla, warm blueberry pie, pipe tobacco, and toasty oak all serve to lure you in for that first wonderful sip. And what a sip it is! The palate is wonderfully plush and jammy with an excellent mix of red and blue fruit flavors touching every corner of your mouth. It finishes in classic Aussie Shiraz fashion by delivering an abundance of peppery spice though we think you’ll find that there are no hard edges here, just gobs and gobs of grapey goodness. Labor Day is right on the horizon and we believe this awesome Shiraz would be a fantastic fit for all your holiday grilling and chilling. Please pass by the shop tonight to taste the 2014 Wakefield Jaraman Shiraz for free. We think you’ll flip when you try it!
Food Pairing:Do you love bleu cheese? I know I do. In fact, my idea of a perfect dessert course is a cheese board with a few aged bleus, some hunks of good crusty bread, and a big ole glass of a luscious red. The Wakefield Jaraman Shiraz is the perfect sort of wine for that job since it is so wonderfully dense and rich yet lacking the hard edges and tannic grip of some of it’s contemporaries. Let the cheese gurus upstairs at whole foods guide you in selecting some of their favorite pungent cheeses to pair up with this hedonistic delight of a wine.
