The Shiraz was sourced from premium areas across South Eastern Australia. Selecting only the darkest and flavoursome fruit. The Black Shiraz was named because of the deep colour of the juice after crushing and the intensely dark flavours from the resulting wine.
In 2007 Bob Berton purchased the Yenda winery in the heart of the Riverina. This state of the art facility has the capacity to process 20,000 tonnes of grapes
All vines have been spur pruned. Vine age is varied. Vines are planted roughly 1.8m apart with 3.6m between the rows to allow machinery access. The Trellis system is generally a single wire cordon.
This intense, full flavoured, rich and full bodied Shiraz with well integrated oak, shows lovely plum fruit, coffee, chocolate and white pepper on the palate. The flavours are supported by juicy soft tannins to create a beautiful layering of texture and taste that continues to a long lingering finish.
The perfect choice for rich, spicy especially peppery dishes. Steak au poivre, full flavoured game casseroles, beef sausages and Chilli con Carne are all great food matches.
