TeAro Estate Pruners Reward Fortified Shiraz Grenache

Chilly nights call for something warming and a fortified easily fulfills that criteria.

This fortified 50/50 blend of Shiraz Grenache from the Barossa Valley has been blended away from nine year old barrels. Brand Ambassador Todd Rowett says he happily left them in the shed to do their thing. And the final result is impressive.

Super soft and generous with dense Christmas cake and sultanas. Toss in some orange peel, a lick of toffee and some gentle rancio, the delivery is thick and lip smackingly delicious. Five percent fortified muscat has added a slick sweetness sweeping across the very long and what seems to be a never ending finish.

Kick the slippers off, undo the belt a notch or two and sit back and enjoy.
