Muratie Ronnie Melck Shiraz 2011

Bright and enticing, this deep ruby red wine has an abundance of spice on the nose - lots of black and white pepper with hints of dark chocolate and rich fruit cake. The palate has plenty of black plummy fruit with some prunes, smoked meats and mulberry notes, all wrapped up in silky tannins with smoky spicy oak discreetly in the background.

If you want to enjoy it now, a charcuterie platter of free-range meats would be just the thing.
