Australian food writer and restaurant reviewer Rita Erlich says: “Everyone knows Shiraz loves lamb, and this one is no different, but it would suit Italian-style braises.” Rita recommends it is served with lamb tagine, Stracotta di manzo
This wine, whilst ready to enjoy now has cellaring potential. If you cellar this wine for up to three or four years, it may require decanting. Good reds will “throw a crust” or form sediments over this time, hence the need to decant it. If you drink it young, then remove the screwcap 30 minutes before you serve it, to give the wine time to breathe. If you do cellar it, store in a cool, dry place away from temperature fluctuations.
