PETE'S PURE SHIRAZ 2018 - Straits Wine


Wine Region : Euston, New South Wales, Australia

Grapes : 90% Shiraz, 10% Pinot Noir

Tasting notes : The nose is an understated one, with brambles and strawberries: it is a compote of raspberries, strawberries & hints of rockmelon to round things out. The palate has super clean lines, soft edges with perky acidity. Subtlety is the key here. Down played and very easy. Mirin sauce and red fruits with a lifted pomegranate edge. Light in body and fruit weight; a wine for ease and drinkability.

About the winery : 

The vineyard was established by one of Australia’s best known viticultural families in the 1980s, and over the last thirty years has grown to a total of 803 hectares under vine encompassing nine different classic and Mediterranean varieties. The terroir is classic red sandy-loam soils overlaying an ancient limestone bedrock. It’s not only the vineyards at Euston that are astonishing. The property has 14km of frontage to the epic Murray River and encompasses about 1000 hectares of river flat forrest including red gum trees, home to individual trees which have stood for up to 1000 years. There are flood flats with an abundance of black and the rare yellow box flanking these red gum forests.
