The Pig in the House Shiraz is.... excellent! It's a wine which, at first sip, does induce a raised eyebrow, a nice colour with purples and reds. Aromatically the wine is Cowra and Shiraz, with dark berry fruits of blackberry, and ripe cherries. Aromatic spices are mixed with white and black pepper and vanilla.
The palate is a well balanced, it will be appreciated by most red wine drinkers, it has primary fruit purity, and exceptional flavour density. The persistence of flavour is this wines true hallmark, where flavours linger for longer, and flavour complexity develops during this appreciable period. Basically, a good wine which will complement conversation or a Bistecca alla Fiorentina, cooked naturally over live coals. Enjoy!
REVIEWS & AWARDS
90 POINTS "Plum, blueberry and violets over a darker core. There's a modicum of oak in support, vanilla providing an elegant lift. It's proposition is that of an elegant wine - initially light on its toes - segueing to something more full bodied that certainly pulls no punches. There's a candied violet aspect to the wine's finish, where again it does manifest itself with finesse on the back of a good length.
THE VINSOMNIAC, July 2019
"... It’s a soft, rich full-bodied red that demands to be taken to a good Italian bistro and matched with red-sauced pasta. Oh, and it’s a triumph for modern winemaking and the technology behind it."
PS NEWS, John Rozentals, Apr 2019
"Gorgeous bright red/purple colour, a great nose-full of cherries and a smidge of cloves, beautifully balanced & flavoured- rearing to go on its own or with food. DELIGHTFUL!!"

"9.1/10 Once you would only drink organic if there was no choice. Now it’s the go-to tipple … unless you’re a National, Liberal, One Nation, or Palmer voter. They don’t believe in organic."
