Allegory Shiraz

Allegory Shiraz

Allegory Shiraz – The Allegory Shiraz is an opulent, full-bodied wine with excellent concentrated fruit flavours and soft approachable palate. It will drink well now and will develop complex aging characters of rich earth, leather and forest floor over the next 5 years.

Shiraz has distinct identities in its Australian home – the wines of Barossa, McLaren Vale, Hunter Valley, Great Southern and Margaret River all express different stories. This  Shiraz shows the Southwestern version of the grape in classic, juicy style – fruit-forward, plush, and downright delicious!

This shiraz displays all the strengths and beneficial flavour characteristics common to the regions which comprise the blend. Vibrant, ripe and alluring raspberry, cherry and blackberry aromas are beautifully complemented by subtle vanilla and baking spice accents, and all these elements flow through to the palate where they mingle with gentle mocha and cinnamon notes. The mouthfeel is silky soft yet with sufficient tannin grip to retain flavour on the mid-palate and provide a pleasant lingering aftertaste of pure Shiraz satisfaction.

Enjoy now or keep for the next five years.

Allegory

Allegory is a range of expressive varietal wines that showcases the elegance and vibrancy typical of Western Australia. They are made by Howard Park, a family-owned winery founded in 1986, and one of the state’s best respected producers. Howard Park have a unique combined expertise in both the Margaret River and Great Southern regions, and by carefully blending selected parcels of fruit from each, they allow Allegory to capture the essence of Western Australia.

Western Australia

This state is a relatively small contributor to the country’s grape plantings. However it does not stop the state being responsible for some of the finest wines coming out of Australia. This region clearly has a turning point in its wine producing status. Research reports from Californian viticulturalist Professor Harold Olmo, in the 1950s, and the Western Australian scientist Dr John Gladstone, in the 1960s, indicated that the more southern cooler regions of Western Australia where very well suited for production of world quality wines. Now these regions: Margaret River, Great Southern and Pemberton are the major wine producing regions of Western Australia. Margaret River region is now one of the premium regions of Australia and regarded along with Coonawarra and Yarra Valley as one of the three premium Cabernet Sauvignon areas in Australia.
