Deep and vibrant ruby colour with a purple rim, this wine displays spicy plum and red berry fruits. Secondary complexity is evident with notes of savoury spice and vanillin oak. The palate is soft with a fresh, fruit-driven palate. Ripe plum and black cherry combines with subtle, toasty oak and peppery liquorice notes. Soft velvety tannins add texture.
Best enjoyed with hard cheeses or roasted lamb.
Grown under the warm Western Australian sun and cooled by local sea breezes, the Amberley vineyards produce fruit with vibrant, attractive fruit flavours expressed through our wines.
The 2012 vintage was spectacular for red grapes in Western Australia. The Shiraz showed incredible density and fruit flavour. Conditions in spring were mild with intermittent rainfall assisting healthy vine growth. Low rainfall over summer, combined with warm but not excessive temperatures provided ideal development and ripening. The 2012 Amberley Shiraz displays this excellent season with classic varietal characters of pepper and plums.
