Calabria Family Wines, Richland Shiraz 2020

The Richland labels under the Calabria Family Wines umbrella offer abundant primacy of varietal characteristics and are readily approachable.

This 2020 Richland Shiraz from a blend of grapes sourced from the Riverina and the Barossa, is generous in its palate journey and smoothly enjoyable even at this stage of infancy.

The fruit profile is one of ripe plums, raspberries and cherries underlined by a peppery mid-palate and juicy acidity.

It can be enjoyed, slightly chilled by itself and with protein dishes.
Our examplar, glugged over two days without loss of power, was well-matched both with charcuterie and with a meat & mushroom hotpot.

It is very well-priced, generous in delivery and readily available at bottle shops
