2013 RESERVE SHIRAZ
2013 was a hallmark vintage for red wines at OFW. This wine developed wonderful colour and flavour intensity. The blend consists mostly of new oak, providing the lifted aromas and also some older oak that has added palate richness. A true Reserve wine from a special vintage. The fruit used for our Reserves are still Swan Valley fruit however sourced from old vines in Belhus planted back in 1941.
Colour: Medium Garnet.
Nose: Brooding, complex aromas of coffee, mocha, cedar and super ripe forest fruits.
Palate: A wine that builds flavour from the front to the back palate, delivering flavours that the nose promises. A very bold, yet elegant wine with fine grain tannin's, full body and well deserving of a "Reserve" tag.
Drink: 12-15 years
Residual Sugar: <0.5g per litre
The Cheese Barrel Cheese Match: Bucaro Pepatto, Smoked Cheddar, Provolone, Stokes Point Smoked Cheddar, Truffle Cheddar, & Pyengana Cheddar.
