2022 Shed Red – Cabernet Shiraz Blend

Unconstrained by the red tape of appellation, the Australian winemaking tradition has exploited the cross-regional blend of the Bordeaux and Rhône grapes to combine their different virtues into a wine that, at its best, is greater than the sum of its parts.  In 1962, Bin 60A Cabernet Shiraz blend was regarded as the best red wine ever made in Australia and due to its low selling price was dubbed the “poor man’s Grange”. It was the product of dry land, low-yielding Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon and Barossa Valley Shiraz.  Lentedal’s ‘Shed Red’ is literally made in our cellar door shed and is currently one of our most popular wines. Co-fermented using 54% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and 46% Shiraz grapes by weight, our wine has evolved aromatic complexity, yet still-youthful vigour. Supple, pure, dark cherry fruit, fine savoury balance and structure: Smooth to drink now or if you can wait, will be spectacular in 3-4 years.  Best paired with grilled or roast beef, barbecue ribs, spicy sausages, kangaroo and a strong hard or a mellow blue cheese.
