Are You Game Shiraz

Are You Game Shiraz

Are You Game Shiraz is youthful red in colour with some bright purple hues, this shiraz has aromas of plum, black and green pepper and subtle oak. The palate is elegantly structured and well-balanced, with notes of ripe plum, chocolate and spice – and a great length of flavour.

The Fowles Wine vineyards and winery are located in the dramatic granite landscape of Strathbogie Ranges region of Victoria, Australia.
Fowles Wine crafts some of Australia’s finest cool climate wines, winning many of Australia’s most prestigious wine medals and trophies. The Fowles Wine team is energetic and enterprising, continuing to break new ground by proudly taking the Strathbogie Ranges ‘message in a bottle’ to the world with some of Australia’s most exciting wines.

The fruit for this wine was harvested during the day in March and April in 2014. Fermented at around 26 ̊ C in high-tech stainless steel sweep-arm fermenters to maximise colour and preserve primary fruit flavours. We chose to use a combination of three different yeasts to ferment this wine because each one contributes its own unique attributes that build layers of complexity and interest in this wine.
This wine was matured for 12 months using new French and American oak.The progeny of a perfectly mild and dry spring, this shiraz was blended with a dash of viognier (4%) from the central Victoria region, Dookie, to give it a subtle apricot perfume lift.

Are You Game Shiraz goes perfectly with roast pork and crackling with all the trimmings and with with all manner of meaty morsels.

We love to source our food from the wild or grow it at home. Nothing beats the taste of food and wine as nature intended it – real:
pure, slow grown and full of flavour. So like us, why not keep it real and go wild with food and wine matching…

Enjoy now or cellar for up to five years.

Fowles Wine

Fowles Wine comes from the very cool-climate of the Strathbogie Ranges in Victoria. Amongst other innovations, they have pioneered wine specifically blended to match wild game. Whilst winning many of the best ‘traditional’ awards in the Australian wine scene and being named a “Winery to Watch” by Wine Spectator, Fowles Wine has a culture of doing things differently! (They are also the largest winery in Australia controlled by Gen Y.)

Victoria

The modern wine history began in the mid 1970s with Dr Peter Tisdall establishing the Mount Helen vineyard. Followed by Plunketts’s in the late 1970s. Since then the region has expanded steadily. The climate is regarded as cool. The main wine styles: White – Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc; Red – Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot.
