This Shiraz was blended from the grapes harvested from the vineyards at Red Cliffs in Victoria. The nose is rich in spicy fruitcake and raisin aromas with subtle hints of chocolate and cinnamon. This well balanced wine has an intense palate of dark berry fruits. Ideal as an accompaniment to any gourmet red meat dish.
The excellent Lyrebird and Sunnycliff wines are made by the Wingara Wine Group from their estate at Red Cliffs, near Mildura in the Murray Valley of North West Victoria. Here they have 350 hectares (865 acres) of vines growing a wide variety of grape varieties, both black and white. The climate in this inland part of Australia is reliably warm while the great Murray River which flows down from the Australian Alps brings life to the region. Wingara now belongs to Freixenet, the Spanish Cava producer.
The Wines exhibit all the warm and generous flavours that Australian Wines are renowned for. The name Sunnycliff exemplifies their sunny nature and they are styled with a mind to the easy going character of the Australian lifestyle.
