Pyren Broken Quartz Shiraz 2010
Pyren Broken Quartz Shiraz
Warrenmang Valley, Australia
Pyren Vineyard is a small-scale, family focused producer of cool-climate wines. Pyren is located on the slopes of the picturesque Warrenmang valley, in The Pyrenees region of Victoria, Australia. Established in 1999 by the Joy family and partners, the 80 acre vineyard has consistently produced low, concentrated yields of high quality fruit. The Broken Quartz Shiraz label is generally made from fruit harvested from the lower lying end of Block B and Block C. As a rule of thumb, these Shiraz vines carry greater vigour and fruit opulance than the more elevated vines. The resulting wine rates very highly on the all important drinkability scale with ripe flavours well balanced with elegant acids.
This is a solid Shiraz. While not as smokey as some, it bears the classic Shiraz nose with a smooth finish.
Average Price: $20
