Giaconda Warner Vineyard Shiraz

Giaconda wines have a super-cult status and, given the tiny production, are extremely difficult to find; they are sold chiefly through restaurants and by mail order. All have a cosmopolitan edge befitting Rick Kinzbrunner’s international winemaking experience.
Compelling and remarkably perfumed, this Shiraz from Warner Vineyard is feminine and highly aromatic on first impression, and, as each layer is peeled away, the beautiful elements of Shiraz are slowly revealed.
