“The Lustre Merino Ram” Shiraz Merlot
More than 80% of all Australian sheep are pure Merino, a breed that produces a heavy fleece & fine wool. It was Captains Waterhouse & Kent who introduced 26 sheep of Spanish Merino blood to Australia in 1796. This fine wine is named after JC & S Lustre 53 which set a world record when sold at the 1988 Merino Ram Sale in Adelaide, South Australia for $450,000.
A velvety, medium-bodied wine with subtle aromas of leather & black peppers. Berry jam and spice mixed with the softening of Merlot produces a wine with a complex structure yet easy drinking.
Make a perfect pairing:
Hearty dishes, roast lamb or fillet of beef with roast vegetables, game meats, heavy sauces and pasta dishes
