Shiraz thrives in Australia’s warm climate and is the country’s most celebrated and most planted variety. Odyssey blends Shiraz from the Riverland and Barossa Valley regions. The Riverland’s long sunny days fully ripen grapes, producing deliciously fruity wines with generous dark berry and plum aromas and flavours. Barossa is home to some of the world’s oldest Shiraz vines and is known for highly concentrated fruit, packed with black fruit flavours and ripe tannin.
Riverland Shiraz is pre-oaked with French oak for a subtle infusion of vanilla, maple, and sweet spice. Barossa Shiraz is blended in to amplify ripe black fruit, dark chocolate, and licorice flavours. A mix of American and French oak during fermentation further refines notes of spice and vanilla and lends silky tannin. Last but not least, Hungarian Acacia enhances texture and body. The result is a bold, rich, full-bodied wine with luscious blackberry and plum flavours layered with chocolate, vanilla and sweet spice, culminating in a warm lengthy finish.
Great with bold foods. Try with steak fajitas, smoked brisket, Stilton sirloin burgers, or Moroccan spiced lamb. For dessert, look to dark chocolate or berry-based dishes.
