Winemaker's Notes:

Deep plum, with purple tinged edges. A rich combination of ripe fruit with subtle sweet oak aromas. Attractive Shiraz aromas of raspberry and licorice with light peppery tones with sweet vanilla oak to complement the distinctive fruit aromas. A rich and generous palate structure with well integrated and subtle sweet oak. Ripe raspberry and plummy fruit tones with sweet vanillin oak flavors. Soft, fine tannins combine well with the regional peppery note add to the lingering finish.

Try this shiraz with a marbled beef fillet, beef goulash or rich tomato based pasta.

My Notes:

About Nick Faldo:

Faldo wines were launched in 2000 and named in honor of legendary golfer Nick Faldo. They are made entirely from estate grown fruit.

The aim behind Faldo wines is to capture the essential characteristics of Coonawarra in a harmonious, early drinking, fruit forward style priced for regular enjoyment. There are three wines in the range: Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
