Soldier's Block Shiraz

Soldier's Block Shiraz

Region
Victoria, Australia
Vintage:
2018
Producer:
Boutinot
Grapes:
Syrah/Shiraz
Wine Description:

Bright and lifted shiraz with aromas of summer fruit pudding, mulberry and black pepper. The palate offers notes of vanilla and chocolate, combining elegance and length on the finish.

Tasting Note:

Bright, aromatic and juicy on the nose with just a touch of naughty bacon fat. True to the varietal, the tiny proportion of Malbec in this blend gives a flowery perfume. This vintage is our brightest, most dangerously drinkable Shiraz to date due to its fine, bright fruit and soft silky elegance.

Vegetarian, Vegan

Food Suggestion:

Drink with Moroccan lamb tagine, roast vegetables and hard cheeses.

Producer Description

Boutinot started life in Greater Manchester in 1972 when Paul Boutinot begin to collect wines from France and bring back to Manchester to sell at his parents restaurant. Paul's reputation quickly begin to grow and it wasn't long before other restaurants were asking for him to sell them wine and the company was started in 1980 as a wine supplier.

Boutinot have furthered their reputation for great value wines by starting to produce wines themselves. They have partnered with Italian producer Adria Vini, have their own vineyard holdings and winery in France and vineyards in South Africa, and now a large percentage of Boutinot's portfolio is their own production.
