On the nose, it has a strong blackberry and oak aroma with faint hints of ripe fruit. On the palate, Shiraz wine has a beautiful length that is characterised by tobacco, black olives, red fruit, and earthy flavors of truffle, and coffee. Australian Shiraz pairs best with grilled or roasted meaty dishes.
