COATES - THE VP SHIRAZ 2006 500ML
A red fortified wine made in the port style. Fresh berries and cherry aroma with a lively minerality. A hint of sweetness to its dark berry flavours. A nice balanced wine that pairs perfectly with rich cheeses.
ORIGIN McLaren Vale, South Australia
MAKER Coates Wines
The winemaking philosophy of Coates Wines is not predicated on fashion or blind adherence to dogma, the processes we use (and avoid) have grown from experience and understanding. My training is as a winemaker (with a Masters Degree from the University of Adelaide), backed by Australian and International experience. Making wines from the large scale commercial end down to small batch boutique provides a pragmatic perspective on the wine world. Coates Wines are made in a way that is hoped will provide sensory delights truest to region and variety. Those who make their wines with a different philosophy to my own make different wines to my own. Experimentation and diversity is welcomed in the vinous landscape.
