White Shiraz California Reserve
Cellar Craft Sterling Sugar Code: 1 Alcohol Vol:
12 litres of must from California Shiraz, which received minimum skin contact, is the heart of this wine. An all natural, 230 ml Flavour Reserve (featuring Viognier) is added after fermentation to add body, elevate the aromatics and create a just off-dry finish. The light salmon colour comes from the brief skin contact. The nose has complex layers of honeysuckle, strawberry, apricot, and tropical fruit. On the palate, the wine is smooth and round with notable strawberry flavour and a suggestion of tropical fruit. Don’t confuse this as just another take on White Zinfandel! The wine shows well after a couple months of ageing and is usually consumed within a year. Serve lightly chilled as an aperitif or with light foods. Try it with chicken, salads, desserts, and Asian dishes.
