The Brini Christian Shiraz is a carefully selected blend of our old vine shiraz. Matured in new and 1 year old French and American oak barrels for 18 months. The deep enticing red velvet colour reveals elegant tiered flavours of plum, berries and a characteristic liquorice lift interplayed with violet floral. The fruit intensity classically found in McLaren Vale shiraz intertwined with soft and silky tannins produce a smooth complex long playing finish on the palate.
The Christian Shiraz is a generous style that will continue to develop with careful cellaring. Our premium wines will show themselves beautifully with decanting.
95 Points: "From the best blocks in the vineyard, matured for 18 months in new and 1yo French and American oak. The colour is very good for a 5yo shiraz, the aromas and flavours reflect a great vintage slowly moving forward to maturity, and the long plateau that will follow. No shy, retiring flower, but it does have the finesse lacking in the other Brini reds, its flavours and mouthfeel supple and smooth with plum, dark chocolate and red licorice all in play, tannins swallowed by the fruit."
