Winexpert Private Reserve™ LIMITED RELEASE: Odessey Shiraz with crushed grapes

Available August 9th.   As of Sept. 29, 2021 we have a couple still in stock.

OUTSTANDING AUSTRALIA.
Shiraz thrives in Australia’s warm climate and is the country’s most celebrated and most planted variety. Odyssey blends Shiraz from the Riverland and Barossa Valley regions. The Riverland’s long sunny days fully ripen grapes, producing deliciously fruity wines with generous dark berry and plum
aromas and flavours. Barossa is home to some of the world’s oldest Shiraz vines and is known for highly concentrated fruit, packed with black fruit flavours and ripe tannin.

SIMPLY EPIC.
Riverland Shiraz is pre-oaked with French oak for a subtle infusion of vanilla, maple, and sweet spice. Barossa Shiraz is blended in to amplify ripe black fruit, dark chocolate, and licorice flavours. A mix of American and French oak during fermentation further refines notes of spice and vanilla and lends silky tannin. Last but not least, Hungarian acacia enhances texture and body. The three different types of wood are expertly managed to accent the varietal’s ripe dark fruit flavours, enriching the wine, not overpowering it.  The result is a bold, rich, full-bodied wine with luscious blackberry and plum flavours layered with chocolate, vanilla and sweet spice, culminating in a warm lengthy finish.

FOOD PAIRING.
Great with bold foods. Try with steak fajitas, smoked brisket, Stilton sirloin burgers, or Moroccan spiced lamb. For dessert, look to dark chocolate or berry-based dishes.
