Indulge in the captivating allure of Chapple Cairn Curran Bold Red Shiraz, a true embodiment of Central Victoria's winemaking excellence.

This exceptional wine is crafted from carefully selected grapes, left on the vine until late in the season to achieve optimal ripeness and concentration giving a nod to traditional bold central Victorian Shiraz.

The bold nature of this Shiraz, aged in American oak barrels, is evident in its higher alcohol content, which contributes to its robust body and intensity. However, what truly sets this wine apart is its remarkable balance. Despite its strength, it remains smooth and harmonious on the palate, ensuring a pleasurable drinking experience from the first sip to the last.

Appearance: This Shiraz wine presents a deep, opaque ruby-red colour almost to an inky darkness, reflecting its concentration and maturity.

Aroma: Upon swirling the glass, the enticing bouquet reveals aromas of ripe blackberries and dark cherries, interwoven with notes of plums and figs. The influence of American oak introduces nuances of vanilla, caramel, and subtle hints of smokiness, enhancing the aromatic experience.

Palate: The palate is an opulent showcase of intense flavours. Luscious black fruits take centre stage, with layers of luscious jams, rich plum flavours, dark berry undertones and subtle hints of peppery spice. The American oak aging imparts velvety tannins, contributing to a smooth and luxurious mouthfeel. The wine's higher alcohol content amplifies its richness, making it an ideal choice for enthusiasts of full-bodied wines.

Food Pairing: This bold Shiraz is tailor-made to complement robust and flavourful dishes. Pair it with hearty, grilled red meats such as ribeye steak or lamb chops for an exceptional gastronomic experience. Its powerful profile also makes it an excellent match for slow-cooked stews, spicy barbecued meats, and game dishes. The wine's depth and intensity stand up well to aged cheeses like aged cheddar or Gouda.

Serving instructions: For optimal enjoyment, serve this wine at a temperature of 16-18°C (61-64°F). Decanting is recommended to fully appreciate its evolving character. Allow the wine to breathe and blossom in the glass before relishing each sip.
