Rib Tickler, Shiraz, California, USA
Rib Tickler Shiraz 2019
Inspired by Bourbon and BBQs, this is the ultimate wine match with meat cooked low and slow!
The grapes are de-stemmed and pressed. Fermentation takes place in tank, preserving the juicy fruits, after which the wine is matured with an oak component for 4 months. This gives liquorice, spice and a little bit of ‘oompf ’ to an already delightful wine.
Attractive plummy purple in colour. The nose oozes bright raspberry and blackberry fruit with a hint of toasted caramel oak. The palate has lots of ripe juicy fruit with pepper spice and more-ish vanilla character. The finish is soft, subtle and embracing. It’s a ‘kick-back’ and relax kind of wine.
Roast beef, barbequed meats and succulent steaks... or oven-roasted vegetables if you prefer!
