Perfect with white meat dishes, try with a grilled chicken salad.
Rolleston Vale Shiraz, Australia
An approachable Aussie Shiraz from the high-altitude vineyards of the Oatley family. Rolleston Vale Shiraz is packed with rich dark berry fruit and a hint of spice on the finish. The fresh style makes it highly versatile.
