Bellarine Estate Two Wives Shiraz 2022
A co-ferment of Shiraz and 5% Viognier, Two Wives is a dark, peppery combo of the two grapes. Endowed with abundant dark berries, licorice strap, black pepper aromas, it’s an intriguing introduction. As it settles on the palate, a broader flavour profile emerges one peppered (so to speak) with savoury, meaty, earthy notes. At its core remains a delightful pepperiness immersed among the juicy fruit, spice and the warm, toasty oak (a combination of French and American oak staves and French barriques). Plenty of life and energy to this wine.
