This Granite Belt Shiraz Rare Tawny has been fortified with brandy spirit and left to mature in 300L neutral oak barrels for 15 years. The resultant wine is a complex and intriguing fusion of ripe and sweet fruit, warm spices and subtle hints of toffee.
Enjoy this fortified wine with caramel based desserts or home baked biscotti!

"Excellent fortified wine with strong rancio, woody spice, dried fruit-and-nut characters and clean, refreshing spirit integrated beautifully. Strong scents of fruit and nut dark chocolate, mustard powder, cocoa powder, licorice, cinnamon and toffee. Similar flavours with a little tannin grip and that cool spirit character keeping things fresh and perky. Really well done." Halliday Wine Companion, Mike Bennie.
Estate grown hand harvested shiraz grapes used.
Fortified with a light brandy spirit and aged in old neutral oak hogsheads for 15 years.
