Judges Comments:

Since first introduced into Australia 190 years ago, Shiraz has been an absolute winner for the country and its wine industry. The same grape as our Syrah, it's grown in a much hotter climate and the results are amazing. This year's Champion Shiraz / Syrah is testament to that difference. Fabulous colour and superb ripe fruit with a hint of liquorice and struck flint. Juicy rich palate and a long finish, it treads lightly for a big wine.

Pairing Recommendation:

Shiraz is often a powerful rich wine that's perfect with big rich flavours. Try it with burger and ribs, steak, sausages and game dishes. Take to a pot-luck dinner or a BBQ with the neighbours and, of course, wonderful with the Sunday roast. Syrah is the same grape, but often a wine that is more medium bodied, great with pizza and pasta dishes, game, especially duck and rabbit. BBQ lamb and slow cooked meat dishes, as well as a simple steak with green beans and potato fries. Pair this hard or aged cheese like cheddar, gouda and pecorino.
