2017 Andreas Shiraz
Our Iconic Premium Shiraz showcases the finest in elegance and finess. Its restrained power with length of flavour delivers unmatched quality in the region.
COLOUR Deep Crimson Red, Purple Hue NOSE Dark Plum and Cherry. Chocolate and Vanillin. Sweet spices. PALATE Rich, concentrated and mouth coating, showing plum and dark cherry supported by underlying chocolate and vanillin. Fine tannin, elegant structure balance and length.
A wet winter and spring produced localised flooding in the Clare Valley in late September, this provided the region with plenty of sub surface moisture. Decent rains continued into vintage and coupled with mild temperatures, contributed to excellent fruit and in turn wine quality. Paulett Wines’ vintage started on Tuesday 7th March.
Selected from the ancient block, picked late in the season, hand processed through our 100+ year old Mintaro slate open fermenters and matured in our best French Oak barrels for 20 months. This wine is a hallmark of Polish Hill River Shiraz.
Food Pairing Notes
Roast beef especially served rare or with a pepper sauce. Barbecue of Ribs or Spicy sausages. Strong hard cheeses especially cheddar. With its sweetness of fruit it can also handle a mellow blue.
