3 Rings Shiraz is 100% Shiraz, deep red with a garnet hue. It is full-bodied, showing lifted black currants, ripe plum, mint, caraway seeds and integrated oak on the nose. The palate is a labyrinth of ripe plums, black cherries, dark chocolate and ground coffee, with rustic overtones of cigar box and leather. The fruity complexity is finished with seamlessly layered tannic structure that is balanced with natural defining acids. This wine will drink well for more than ten years.
Enjoy 3 Rings Shiraz with roast loin of lamb, rib-eye steak, BBQ ribs, grilled vegetables and hard cheeses.
