Auld Family Wines 'Strawbridge' Shiraz
Free shipping over 750 HKD
A grade stuff, this. An unreal reward after a long day’s hiking or the guest of honour to invite to a mid-week cook up *chef’s kiss*
This one’s a deep drinker. Swirl those red fruit, chocolatey and coffee characters now or squirrel it away for ten years or so to develop even more.
When it comes to wine families, Sam and Jock Auld are the real deal. It’d be hard not to become a vino obsessive when your Barossa Valley upbringing meant dried grape seeds cushioning falls from the monkey bars and early morning pruning as teens. But given their pioneering great-grandfather planted some of SA’s very first vines, it was written. If the Auld family name had been used consistently for the last six generations, it might be as renowned as Penfolds. But as one of the ‘in crowd’, we’re kind of pleased it isn’t.
