Centenary Hill Shiraz 2012
Ripe berry fruit flavours, well integrated stylish oak, leading to a long, fine finish. A wine able to complement many styles of food, Try chargrilled venison fillet with cherry glaze or barbequed kangaroo fillet served on hummus with roasted baby beets and spiced yoghurt.
In 1947, Fred Gramp planted a Moreton Bay fig tree to commemorate 100 years since his grandfather, Johann Gramp established the first commercial vineyard in the Barossa Valley along the banks of Jacob’s Creek. The site was named Centenary Hill. This fine example of Barossa Shiraz is named after this location and today the Moreton Bay Fig still proudly overlooks Jacob’s Creek. This wine has intense plum and spice aromas and flavours and is rich and full in the mouth with deliciously soft tannins. Fantastic with veal, duck, pork, lamb and meat casserole dishes, it also makes a good partner to cheeses at the end of a meal, particularly if the wine is bottle matured a few more years before opening.
