January & The Australian Open

With the Australian Open as the main feature in January’s sporting calendar, what better time could there be to extend your repertoire of Australian wines? 

A fabulous starting point is our award-winning Rogues & Rascals Shiraz from the Byron & Harold Estate in Western Australia. The fruit for this wine comes from the sub-region of Great Southern, which is the coolest part of Western Australia thanks to its prevailing ocean breeze. The cooler temperatures here combined with the sandy loam soils produce this elegant, structured example of Shiraz, reminiscent of a Northern Rhone red. This full bodied Shiraz is juicy on the palate, dominated by Morello cherry and brambley fruit flavours with notes of freshly ground black pepper on the finish.
