What an interesting review this turned out to be!
From the moment we saw the bottle with a misaligned label we had our expectations that this was going to be something different. The Shiraz comes from the ‘Arms-length Wine Co’, a company we have not heard of before, nor have we tasted any wines from the Mt Benson area. So in every aspect this was a first for us.
Enjoyable from the first sip, this Shiraz had abundant dark berry flavours and a hint of spice with pleasant cherry aromas. It was not a heavy red though and lacked some of the boldness of other South Aussie dry reds we have enjoyed in the past. That said, we would like to compare it with more established wines at another time, and think this would be an ideal wine to cellar for a few years, and revisit after the wine has had an opportunity to age.
Should you wish to try one now, it would be ideal with grilled lamb chops, beef stir fry, mature cheese or roast beef (we put our beef in the slow cooker and it was delicious later that night). Why not try one this week with some friends. Expect the unexpected if you do, and let us know if you agree with our review or whether you found something different!
