Winemaking - These top quality, low-yielding, fully ripened grapes were fermented in open vats before being matured in a combination of new and used French and American oak barrels.

Winery Tasting Notes

The 2015 Velvet & Willow Grenache Shiraz displays a beautiful bright purple colour, lovely aromas of plums with hints of black cherries and just a trace of oak.

The wine has a big, rich, flavoursome palate with subtle vanillin oak and fully ripe fruit. It has some tight grippy tannins on the finish to balance out the whole package into a great blend.

Food Suggestions - By its very nature, this wine makes an ideal accompaniment to rich, hearty dishes. Especially barbequed meats or stews.
