Since its inception the Railroad Red has become a firm favourite amongst wine lovers eager for outstanding quality at an affordable and attractive price point. This wine offers endless drinking pleasure.
Components may vary but varietals include Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Franc with small percentages of Sangiovese, Ruby Cabernet and Mourvedre. Railroad vineyards are all home grown. The Shiraz, Mourvedre and Ruby Cabernet hail from the sunny sites in Robertson, promoting upfront fruit characteristics. The berries were fermented in closed and open fermentors with regular pump-overs and punch downs to ensure optimum fruit and soft extraction. A portion of the blend was matured in 4th fill French and American oak barrels for 6 – 8 months with the rest of the blend kept unoaked for upfront berry fruit flavours and freshness. Sweet red berry fruit flavours from the Merlot and Cabernet Franc and spiciness from the Shiraz with layers of subtle fruit tannins on the palate. Enjoy with veal, roast lamb, stews or rich pasta dishes.
