Broken Shackle Classic Red
Broken Shackle Classic Red from Berton Vineyards
Berton Vineyard is known for its big, bold red wines, and the Broken Shackle Red is no exception. It's got a little less kick than some of the wines in their range however (most come in at around 14.5% alcohol), and the fruit character is somewhat fresher as a result.
The classic blackberry and bramble flavours of Shiraz are present, but inflected by a hint of plum and redcurrant by the inclusion of the Merlot portion, with a subtle spicy, herbal note to the finish. A very complete package, try it with a vegan nut roast, or a Mediterranean inspired dish with lots of roasted veg.
This vegan red wine was fermented in steel tanks to preserve fruit character. No animal-based fining agents or winery aids were used during the vinification.
Berton Vineyards is a modern, forward-looking producer, embracing the technology and possibilities of vegan winemaking.
Grape variety: 86% Shiraz, 10% Merlot, 4% Other
