£9.95

opportunist shiraz
The Opportunist Shiraz has lots of ripe, generous red berry fruit with a ripe blackcurrant finish. Easy drinking warm Aussie Shiraz.

One Chain Vineyards, like Thistledown is overseen by Peter Leske, Giles Cooke MW and Fergal Tynan MW. Comprising two ranges, Cricket Series and Character Series, One Chain works with growers to source fruit from some of the most established regions of South Australia. Our Character Series has a range of beautifully produced and packaged wines, benefitting from the same ultra premium quality fruit sourced for Thistledown. Each wine has great varietal definition coupled with our signature vibrancy and freshness. These are wines that are immediately pleasing, yet authentic expression of the variety and place.

Fruit for the Opportunist Shiraz comes from 3 separate blocks of the same vineyard in the historic Langhorne Creek region. All blocks are trellised and spur pruned though the trellis height vary dependent on frost risk. Soils are a mix of sandy loam and darker red soils with moderate fertility. Yields are low to moderate with good canopies that allow for a lengthy ripening period.

An energetic, vibrant nose of delicious, herbal cassis and spice followed by a succulent palate of dark fruits, mocha and grilled meats. Lovely balance, intense yet not over-powering.
