2018 Dolce Far Niente Rosso
Vintage Liqueur Shiraz

It was on a gorgeous, sunny day in April of 2018 when we were harvesting the Samuel Nitschke Cabernet vineyard in Greenock that Wyndham came upon some Shiraz grapes that had been left on the vine in the adjacent vineyard. The juice had a powerful intensity of flavour, luscious sweetness and ample body.

And so, he created a wine that was picked by hand and enhanced by only spirit and oak. A heady combination of stewed plums, mulberry and salmiac liquorice, it’s rich and full with deep, developed layers of cherries and blackberries. Enjoy this effortlessly luxurious Shiraz with dark chocolate, tiramisu or sharp cheeses.

1. Finely chop the chocolate, a food processor makes this easier. Place in a large heatproof bowl with a small pinch of salt (or to taste).

2. Heat the cream over medium heat until boiling. Pour over chocolate and stir until all the chocolate has melted and is well combined with the cream.

3. Pour the mixture into a large, lined tray and leave to cool at room temperature. Once completely cooled, chill in the fridge for 5 hours or overnight, until the mixture has set.
