Peter Robinson "A complex nose that starts quite earthy but with a little aeration opens to reveal aromas of blackberry, damson and plum with a little stewed red current and fig in the background and a wonderful, chocolatey warmth. The palate offers more black fruits with fig and chocolate becoming more prominent. The texture is supple but the acidity remains supportive, there is a little alcohol heat but the overall balance and texture of this wine is almost soothing." Tasted 29th Jan 2019

Pertaringa’s flagship wines, this classic Shiraz from McLaren vale is deeply coloured, exhibiting beautiful aromas of new leather, spice and a hint of freshly roasted coffee. The palate is dense with layers of black fruit, dark cherries, plum, star anise and peppered game supported by a length of ripe tannins and aromatic French oak. Over The Top Shiraz goes far too well with braised beef brisket and grilled peppered steak.

Region

McLaren Vale is situated south of The Barossa Valley in South Eastern Australia. The local climates vary enormously according to altitude and exposure to the cooling sea breezes. Red grapes flourish here due to the warm climate and varied soil type and the region is best known for soft and juicy Shiraz, old-vine Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The climate is similar to that of the Mediterranean climate with four clear seasons. We can highly recommend the producers Kay Brothers, Clarendon Hills and Shirvington Estate from whom we have some fantastic wines.

Zalto Denk-Art Universal Glass

For richer, oaked Sauvignon Blancs such as The Fuder, white Graves or Semillon/Sauvignon blends. For young and non-vintage Champagne we recommend Zalto Universal. However, the Zalto Universal is a very good all-rounder, designed for all types of wines but may not maximize the potential of certain wine as much as the Bordeaux or Burgundy glass.
