Reynella Shiraz - Not your average Shiraz!

Let me warn you - this is not your average Shiraz, in quality - or price. This is an award winning, BIG shiraz. For those of you who don't know, Shiraz is the leading grape of Austrialia – and it is the same grape as the French Syrah. This is an Australian wine, rich in texture, with warm chocolate flavours and blackberry overtones. Shiraz is a very soft, jammy, wine with a wonderful aroma and is a wonderful wine to drink, especially for those who think they don’t like red wines. Its not nearly as dry as it’s French counterpart, Syrah. Shiraz is perfect with just about any kind of meat: beef, lamb, venison. And let me tell you - it was fantastic with the grilled steak I had for dinner tonight!

Shiraz is one of those great, grill friendly wines, and as I said - for those of you who don't think you like red wines, try a Shiraz. Reynella may be something you might want to work up to - or.... give it a shot! For experienced wine drinkers, this is a must.

For anyone who lives in the Boston area, we're having an instore tasting tomorrow at 2pm. For more information, check out our
