Pinot Noir and Shiraz may seem like an odd couple, but this uniquely Australian blend has a noble history and is currently making a major resurgence. Mixed berry, floral, and soft spice aromas open to a vibrant palate of sour cherry and red fruit flavors with undertones of dark plum, blueberry, light licorice, and spice. Silky tannins and bright acidity complete this juicy and energetic blend.

About the region:
Murray Darling, Australia
Murray Darling is named for two of Australia’s longest rivers, which run through the vast region and provide vital irrigation. The region is hot and dry, with long sunny days balanced by cool nights. The loamy and sandy soils are unique to the Murray River system and nourish strong vines. Together with the heat, rivers, and soils produce grapes which create soft and flavorful wines.
Signature food pairing: Pork Tenderloin with Forest Mushroom Sauce
Using three different types of mushrooms truly deepens the earthy flavors that pair so naturally with Pinot Noir, making this rustic yet elegant dish a great match for our Winexpert™ LE21 Pinot Noir Shiraz.
The recipe and instructional pdf can be found here.
Additional food pairing suggestions:
Herb crusted salmon, sausages, duck dishes, roasted root vegetables, or pan-fried tofu

Placed the order for this LE kit in October. Order was delivered in December. Packaging was perfect. WineExpert LE kits are the highest quality, this one was no different. The must fermented without a problem at 68F. Upon racking to a carboy for aging the wine had great flavors. I look forward to drinking this in the fall.
