Alcohol/vol 14.5%
A classic blend of spicy, red berried Shiraz with juicy, fragrant Grenache. This wine is highly aromatic, with pretty red fruits and exotic spice. The palate is medium bodied and delicious, showing wild strawberry, dried cranberry and rhubarb flavours. There's some nice dried herb and baking spice nuances to this wine, supported by decent amounts of acidity and tannin. It's fresh and vibrant now, however, this wine will mellow further with some age.

Juicy, plump cherry, blackberry and blueberry flavors mingle with vanilla bean, mocha and nutmeg details in this red. The tannins are firm, and there's a savory, sanguine note in the background, plus a lingering hint of roasted chestnut. Shiraz and Grenache. Drink now. 1,200 cases imported.

A 50-50 blend, the 2017 D'Arry's Original Shiraz-Grenache is a bit of a throwback to an age when Australians drank "dry red" when they didn't want to spring for Claret, Burgundy, or Hermitage. Black cherries, mint and vanilla all appear on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is round but also a bit herbal, finishing with hints of fresh sage, plus notes of licorice and some softly dusty tannins.
