Jamsheed La SyrahJamsheed
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Australia (Yarra Valley, Victoria)
GRAPE VARIETAL: Shiraz
Forging a reputation for providing outstanding wines at even better prices, the La Syrah belonging to the entry level Harem collection from Jamsheed is Australian wine excellence with Aussie-adored value.
A blend of Upper Goulburn (60%) and Yarra Valley (40%) fruit, the La Syrah is an exemplary bottle of what Jamsheed does best: Shirazes. Fermented in newer oak, the La Syrah shares many a quality with the winemaker's premium single vineyard offerings, none more important than Jamsheed's trademark spicy character and structure. Basically, it's as good as light Shirazes get at this price.
There's many a reason Jamsheed are so well known and loved in the Aussie wine market; familiarise yourself with one of them tonight in the Harem La Syrah.
Taste Notes: Green, herbal with sniffs of black cherry, cola and a whiff of briar, bringing the nose of the wild woods and earth into the palate, this well structured La Syrah is earthy and spicy. The addition of the new oak flavour lends an approachability.
Recommended Food Pairing: Lamb and grilled meats; roast pork; sausages; BBQ and stews; black olives; dishes with black pepper or herbs; portabello burgers; Mediterranean salads.
