In this collection of our finest and rarest Shiraz, we travel far and wide, from the tropical climes of Chile to California and Washington State and of course down to South Africa and Australia to taste their premium offerings.
Shiraz wine refers separately to two different well-known wines. Historically, the name refers to the wine produced around the city of Shiraz in Persia. In the current era, "Shiraz" is an alternative name for the Syrah grape, mostly used in Australia and South Africa. The modern "Shiraz" grape is identical to Syrah and originated in southeast France with no established connection to the city of Shiraz in Persia.

Easy drinking and will pair well with hors d'oeuvres made with foie gras or soft goats cheese. 'Moxie' is a really fun and fruity sparkling Shiraz which has no vintage. To maintain its characteristic flavours and qualities, it is always made from a blend of Shiraz grapes from the current vintage, and some of the 1996 base wine.
2 x McManis Family Vineyards - Dark purple in colour with a bright hue, it has a dense, jammy boysenberry aroma, which is accompanied by a creamy vanilla and slightly smoky character. The wine is soft and round on the palate and is full of big, juicy dark berry fruit flavours. A long fruit finish is accompanied by hints of milk chocolate. This petite sirah is a full-bodied, delicious wine with notes of chocolate, caramel, toffee and rich black fruit on the nose and palate. The mid-palate is led by mocha notes that carry through to the long luxurious finish. Oak aging has contributed a pleasing mélange of rich creamy caramel and maple syrup scents, with just a barely perceptible waft of smoke. The dense viscous liquid delivers all of the flavours one would expect from the aromatics. Savoury and luscious with a pleasantly persistent finish.
