Beneficio Cellar Reserve Shiraz 2013

It’s not often you can describe a wine as ‘having the lot’ but Beneficio Cellar Reserve Shiraz from Virgin Wines quite simply does. It is bursting with blackcurrant and damson luxuriance, with a spicy, perfumed finish that goes on until the end of time. It’s a wine that pulls no punches and is as full bodied as it gets. A match for any grilled meats, especially charred lamb chops and an assortment of roasted veggies. A truly dazzling, vibrant Shiraz that’ll leave you wanting more, more, more.

Beneficio WineVirgin Wines is known for sourcing some of the best affordable wines from the wine regions of the world. Australia is the country to go to for big bold Shiraz and this wine from the Barossa Valley has incredible fruity depth and a dark brooding power. Beneficio Cellar Reserve Shiraz is a very popular example of full-bodied Australian Red and is highly rated by Virgin Wines customers. Beneficio is the perfect wine to impress your guests as it never fails to bowl over drinkers with its huge body and heavy jammy richness. As one would imagine, this wine is at its best if allowed to breath properly before consumption as guzzling it straight upon opening will not allow the fruity depth to develop. We recommend serving it with roast lamb or a cheeseboard after dinner.
