The 2nd annual International #ShirazWineDay is taking place on 22 July 2021 – a special occasion to celebrate all there is to love about this popular full-bodied red wine, with luscious layers of black and red fruit and savoury spice. Bold, rich and delicious, Shiraz is also an excellent food wine.
With winter in full swing in July, Journey’s End Vineyards invite you to fight off the cold as you explore the delights of their Vineyard Series Shiraz 2017, a distinct example of the estate’s unique terroir. Snuggle up on the couch in front of a roaring fire, and savour a glass of Journey’s End‘s sumptuous Shiraz while you wind down with some Netflix and chill. We might have to postpone this Shiraz Day indulgence until after lockdown, but winter will be with us for some time yet.
