Willow Way No.1 Shiraz Mourvédre 2013

The wine exhibits a complex array of aromas of red cherries and dense spice that flow seamlessly onto the palate. The wine has a juicy mouth feel, silky tannins and finishes with intense fruit.

Especially good with pastas with a spicy tomato sauce, as well as lamb shank and fire-grilled meat.
