Hopefully none of our intrepid readers got blown away in the recent Hurricane that hit us over the weekend!! The title is not only an homage to our recent blustery day but also what will happen when you try our new Blue Cutting Road Shiraz from O’Leary Walker.
This is the wine you’ll want in the house in case another Hurricane blows through and you get trapped. The name of the wine pays tribute to a road that was hand dug by Polish Settlers in the Clare Valley in the late 1800’s. Not only does the road remain a working bush-trail in the summer months but it also dissects to vineyards where the fruit for the Blue Cutting Road wines come from. The Shiraz is typical Clare valley brimming with aromas of spice red liquorice, blackberry, plums and a hint of eucalyptus. The Palate is mouthfilling with luscious dark fruit flavours and hints of spice.
