2020 Franca's Vineyard Shiraz - SALE
Franca's 2020 Premium South Australian Shiraz
Premium South Australian Shiraz - Dark Fruits, spice, American Oak derived vanilla and coconut. Prominent full-bodied palate, firm tannins.
While Australia's Shiraz tradition is very proud and unique, its voice is primarily that of warm climates. These are quite distinct from those found in the northern Rhône, as well as those found in the more temperate parts of Australia.
Franca's Shiraz 2020 - Wine Growing Region South Australia.
- Foods Prepared on a Grill or Barbecue
Sausages, kebabs and robust vegetables that have a lovely sear from the grill, and smokey barbecued meats are the perfect pairing for warm climate Shiraz. Franca's 2020 Shiraz is a big, juicy Australian Shiraz.
- Australian Beef
Try a marbled steak or a thick beef stew with a cool climate Shiraz. The savoury ingredients of the meat will also help round out the tannins in the wine. To put it another way, wine complements the food and vice versa.
- Australian Lamb
When it comes to lamb dishes, there is always a Shiraz to pair with them, whether gyros or chops. So Shiraz from Australia is always a safe bet, especially when paired with Australian lamb.
A normal budburst in September 2019 in Australian cool, dry conditions, was the only thing that was predictable about this vintage. After a December and January of searing heat, regional fires and unpredictable winds, autumn arrived in early February. The critical late-summer/autumn ripening period was perfect for bringing out the best qualities from each of our vineyards.
