Muratie Ronnie Melck Shiraz 2005

This wine shows typical black pepper flavours, a lot of savoury tones as well as some floral notes on the nose. These flavours follow through nicely in the pallet and the wine shows great depth. Layer upon layer is uncovered as you go from drinking this huge wine to enjoying its fabulous aftertaste.

Paring the Ronnie Melck Shiraz with a serious piece of meat will definitely bring out the best in this wine.
