Recommended by: Mabel Lai (Hong Kong Wine Academy)

This wine is made in the renowned region of Barossa in south Australia. It achieved a Bronze medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards in 2016. The Shiraz grapes are sourced from some of the oldest low-yielding vineyards in the region. It is matured in 100% new French oak hogsheads. It is deep in colour, highly concentrated with blueberry and dark plum, and layered with black pepper, liquorice, hints of vanilla and dark chocolate. It has dense tannins and a lingering finish. This is well paired with the Chinese New Year food such as pig knuckle or stewed black mushroom with dried oysters.
