Cirillo Shiraz

Be the first to review this product

Matured in seasoned French and American oak for 12 months. Totally opaque inky black core with a dark purple red hue. Aromas of blackberry and liquorice are overlaid by some perfumed violet and clove notes with vanillin cedar and spicy earth following on. Medium weight and supplely textured the palate has succulent fruit flavours of blackberries and liquorice over a backdrop of violet infusions, vanillin cedar and spice. Silky smooth tannins. Good depth with a long savoury aftertaste of blackberries, liquorice, violet infusions, dried herbs and spicy vanillin cedar.
Cellar 4-5 years.
Alc 14%

Availability: In stock

Boysenberries, plums and blackberries alongside rare char-grilled steaks, choc-licorice bullets and damp, ferrous earth. Juicy and spicy (pepper dominant five spice) with the acidity providing an endearing buoyancy while a spread of textured tannin anchors the experience. Only a notch over medium-bodied with minimal oak influence. Terrific flow, good shape in the mouth. A wine to bring stray sheep back into the Barossa Shiraz fold. Alcohol: 14.5% Region: Barossa Valley, South Australia.
