Excelsior Paddock Shiraz 2011

Why Paddock? Vines are planted on old horse paddocks, giving the wine a unique flavour spectrum.

Appearance: Deep brick red on rim of glass, almost black in centre.
Nose: Smoked meat, mocha, toffee and spicy new wood on nose.
Palate:Lingering flavours of vanilla and ripe black cherries with a long and smooth finish.

This wine is a perfect match for barbequed meat, or strongly flavoured Mediterranean dishes.
