The 2008 T'Gallant Romeo Red Wine is a Shiraz dominant blend with an interesting addition of Muscat to add fleshy fruit flavour and texture on the palate. A supple, medium bodied red wine, Romeo isn't as light as a Rosé nor does it have the weight of a heavy red. It's made in a style that makes it perfect to enjoy over an extended lunch.

Winery Tasting Notes
Shiraz dominant blend with a dash (10%) of Muscat.
The Muscat component really delivers on the nose with some floral tea notes and the right touch of sweetness on the palate, which remains clean and fruit driven. The Shiraz contributes a lovely mix of spicy fruit and dark cherry and liquorice notes.
Brighter red fruit characters providing succulence on the palate. The blend combines to provide a long and smooth palate with plenty of juicy, succulent fruit with supple tannins.
Designed for the long lunch, try the Romeo with suckling pork with a barbeque plum dipping sauce. Alternatively, it's great for grazing over an antipasto platter or with tapas.
