Jim Barry The McRae Wood Shiraz is an exquisite Australian red wine boasting rich flavours. The tantalising bouquet offers notes of ripe cherry, plum, spicy oak, and earthy undercurrents. Its full-bodied palate harmoniously balances complex fruit and spice undertones, enriched with firm tannins and a robust structure. Ageing in American oak barrels imparts a hint of vanilla, creating a layered profile that evolves with every sip. This wine hails from Clare Valley, a renowned wine region adored for its elegant Shiraz. The McRae Wood Shiraz is an expression of opulence and refinement, making it a perfect companion for robust, flavourful dishes.
Lifted aromas of blackberry, blueberry briary fruits and perfumed violets are complemented by a lick of toasty vanillin oak. The palate is restrained in its youth, but delivers depth and concentration with dark forest-fruits, rich fruitcake and a streak of earthy goodness. A wine of fantastic drive and complexity, the delicate grained tannins enhance the lengthy finish.
