2011 Barossa Valley Shiraz
Australia: Barossa Valley (South)
Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, ow, ow, ow!
Today’s Marschall Groom Cellars 2011 Barossa Valley Shiraz is a ripper of a wine that we couldn’t wait to get home and enjoy with a large meal prepared on the grill.
A beautiful dark reddish-purple in the glass, today’s wine is highlighted by the bold flavor combo of juicy red fruit and dark chocolate. In fact, you wouldn’t be remiss if the picture of a chocolate-dipped strawberry popped into your head after the first sip.
Please enjoy today’s bold Aussie treat with our heartiest recommendation.
Dark red, with a lovely brightness to it as you give the glass a swirl. Glimmers of purple are present, as well.
A delightful blend of fruit and complementary notes, with espresso bean, dark chocolate, toasty baking spices, and dried cranberry framing a fruity core of dark cherry and black raspberry.
Very similar to the nose. Chocolate covered red fruit is the highlight of the palate, with subtle summer earth, spice, and oak nuances present as well.
A very smooth and supple finish on today’s wine. A delicious wine to enjoy after a long day at the office.
Honey, garlic, and black peppercorn-spiced chicken breast, finished on the grill with a side of roasted root vegetables.
