The Black Pig Clare Valley Shiraz 2013

The Black Pig Clare Valley Shiraz 2013

  • The open and intense Shiraz fruit of this wine, combined with the rich meaty texture would be best served with a rack of lamb.
  • A delicious New World gem - superb quality from the Clare Valley.
  • A fantastic wine, well worth a try - and we promise you won't be disappointed!

The name comes from the winemaker's latest venture, the rearing of big black pigs for making his very own version of Iberico bellota ham. Using fruit sourced from his personal contacts in the Clare Valley, winemaker Steve Grimley has produced a smooth, mouth-filling wine. A revelation if you're more used to the thumping, ostentatious style typical of the more traditional Aussie fare.

Country: Australia

Right from the start, we knew that we weren't happy with the quality of the off-the-peg Aussie brands. Step up Steve Grimley, a visionary young winemaker. We both realised that we'd need to tailor-make wines for Virgin, to get the best from Down Under.

We have now been working with Steve and his Fuse team for more than a decade blending up precisely to our stylistic needs. They have consistently supplied excellent wine with the flavour profiles we have developed together for our customers, from everyday standards right through to the more funky and esoteric. A great partner.

Perez Cruz Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2013

Perez Cruz Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva Chilian Red Wine

Type: Cabernet Sauvignon

This is our most successful Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon without a doubt. The 1000+ positive reviews speak for themselves! Its concentrated blackcurrant flavour profile is wrapped in a silky tannic duvet thanks to the time spent in 'A grade' oak barriques.
