2021 Giaconda Nantua Les Deux Shiraz Beechworth – Giaconda are one of Australia’s power house wineries producing some of the very best wines to come not only out of Beechworth but Australia as a whole. Most known for their incredibly powerful Chardonnay, with Shiraz and Nebbiolo not far behind. Kinzbrunner’s signature style is a rare combination of power and finesse.
The Nantua range are the perfect alternative for those who can’t afford to drink the flagship wines of Giaconda as their everyday quaffer!
A rather appealing bouquet of baked beets, briary notes and roasted meat pan juices coupled with red to black cherries. It’s sumptuous and rounded on the palate with a rolling combination of red fruits, spicy oak infusions underpinned by a tremendous layer of fine, savoury tannins. It certainly needs decanting to help open-up the bouquet, whilst also allowing the fruit to build up and work with the structural elements of the wine. Hours later, there is a more darker brooding fruit element accompanied by the subtle rise of a “sous bois” note. An absolute beauty that will be at its best in a few years.
