Muratie Ronnie Melck Shiraz 2013

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. A lengthy finish suggests this wine has plenty of potential for ageing

A charcuterie platter of free-range meats would be just the thing.
