The Wine: 2012 Currency Creek ‘CSI Shiraz’ 12.5% alc/vol

This Mediterranean style, cool-climate Shiraz displays plenty of peppery red berries and cherries on the nose. Hints of vanilla and soft spices round the character out and the palate is lighter and friendly with silky tannins, vibrant crimson hues, and a dry, anise-like finish. This is a versatile all-year-round food-friendly wine suited to Mediterranean cuisine, and will cellar well for 3-8 years. A lower alcohol content makes this a ‘socially responsible Shiraz’.

The Winery:

This award-winning family-run winery was awarded 5 stars on debut by James Halliday, and voted one of Australia’s Top 10 Best New Wineries in the 2014 Australian Wine Companion. The wines are grown in vineyards south of Adelaide, in the cool maritime climate of Currency Creek on South Australia’s beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula.

Please see the order form for full details on delivery and ordering.
