Grape info: A native of the northern Rhône valley, Shiraz has been transplanted to many wine regions throughout the world where it is prized for producing full bodied wines with complex notes of leather, liquorice, and black pepper supported by soft, structural tannins, a weighty mid palate and age-worthy potential.
About: Established 75 years ago, but with a story spanning almost 90 years, Calabria has established itself as one of the top twenty wine producers in Australia. Celebrating 25 years, the Three Bridges range was born from Bill Calabria’s dedication to creating a strong reputation for premium Riverina wines.
Grapes are harvested from 40-50-year-old vines in the Barossa valley. Wines are matured for twelve months in French oak before bottling.
Tasting note: Soft tannins, oodles of stewed fruit aromas and a hint of spice make the 3 Bridges a wonderful choice for grilled meats and charcuterie this Christmas.
Character: Blueberry, cherry, vanilla
