The outstanding 2010 vintage in the Barossa has produced a
classic Portrait Shiraz that is a deep red/black color with a
rich bouquet of chocolate and black forest fruits. This is a full
bodied wine with soft, velvet tannins, a long finish and
demonstrates the foresight of our forefathers who planted
Shiraz in the Barossa in the 1850s.
This wine is a perfect accompaniment to steak, roast beef or
lamb and excellent with pizza and meat based pasta dishes.
It is delightful with aged cheddar or pecorino cheeses.
"Bright crimson-purple; drawn partly from the Eden Valley, and part from the Barossa Valley; the medium-bodied palate has excellent texture and structure, with fine spicy/savoury tannins running throughout underneath the black cherry, plum and dark chocolate flavours all signalled by the bouquet; oak, too, plays a positive role."
