There’s chilly weather in the forecast for the weekend and we have a perfect bottle of red for you to cozy up in front of the fire with. The 2014 Maverick Breechens Shiraz hails from Australia’s most famous wine region, the Barossa Valley. This plum and generous 91 Point Red stands as a beacon for everything that is good about Aussie wine. The nose is buoyant and alive with instantly recognizable scents of woodsmoke, roasted plums, vanilla, and Chinese 5 Spice. It bursts from the glass to greet you with each passing swirl and sniff! The palate is similarly exuberant with an abundance of fabulous fruit framing the entry. Plump flavors of blackberries, black currants, and cassis define the entry while engaging secondary flavors of blueberry pie filling, tar, and cherry cordial make for such an appealing finish. Premium Barossa Shiraz is an utterly worthy counterpart to a whole host of hearty meals but this one is so silky and generous that you could take a glass and a good book right to the tub if you were feeling like kicking back after a long week of work. In any case, this Shiraz is an outstanding value! Please pass by the shop this evening to test drive the 2014 Breechens Barossa Shiraz for free at our tasting bar. It is sure to please!
Food Pairing:Do you fire up the grill even in the dead of winter? I know I do! So I’m always looking for a hearty, smoky, inexpensive Red that we can open on weeknights when we’re having casual meals like burgers, grilled veggies, and sausage & peppers. I think you’ll be impressed by the way that the 2014 Maverick Breechens Shiraz works in that context. But don’t limit it to simple meals like that. This is a really serious and thought provoking Northern Rhone style Shiraz that will be every bit as at home when served from the crystal decanter alongside rack of lamb, bison tenderloin, or seared duck breast.
