To make the Fat bastard Shiraz we sourced wines in the Minervois area near Carcassonne, in the Pezenas sector, and in the north of Nimes. These vineyards present excellent conditions for the Shiraz vines. The stony soil and a perfect microclimate yields mature grapes with a high concentration of color and aromas.
A deep ruby colour, the Fat Bastard Wines Shiraz showcases concentrated freshly crushed black pepper aromas and touches of cloves and cinnamon on the nose. The palate follows with an abundance of brambly red fruit, intertwined with flavours of vanilla. It is full in body and contains smooth, rounded tannins. The wine is ideally served between 8° to 10°C. It can be enjoyed now and has the potential to age for 2 to 3 years. This is an ideal bring-and-braai wine and a great online wine buy.
A perfect match with red meat, lamb, spicy foods and full-bodied cheeses.
