Calliope Rutherglen Shiraz 2010
The Calliope range of century old vines, the pinnacle of our winemaking, dry grown produced wines of great intensity and flavour only made in exceptional years.
Our flagship wine utilises the old vine shiraz grapes that impart the unique Rutherglen taste. Traditionally fermented with extended maceration on skins to achieve a balance of flavour and structure. Aged for 24 months in American hogsheads, light fined and filtered prior to bottling.
CELLARING & DRINKING RECOMMENDATIONS
Eat it with beef, rare on the BBQ, sliced thinly in an Asian salad or long slow roasted in the slow cooker. Open the bottle and let it breathe and savour the intensity of flavour in each glass.
Drinking well now and will cellar for 15-20 years.
