Wine of the Day: ’09 Katgully Shiraz Merlot
The ’09 Katgully Shiraz Merlot is known as the queen of the Katgully vineyard. Its heavier posture is the result of spending additional time in oak than its fellow wines, giving it that unique heavy Shiraz personality. The ’09 Katgully Shiraz Merlot is a typical dinner wine and lends itself perfectly for heavier meals such as steaks and pastas.
You may pick up on the slight difference in taste from a typical South Australian Shiraz. The abundance of sunshine in Western Australia and different type of soil creates a sweeter grape that gives this Shiraz Merlot its charismatic hint of sweet yet heavy flavor.
