DC Red Shiraz
Why We Love It
This drink contains no animal products or by-products whatsoever. Furthermore, the bottle, label, and adhesive used are completely free from any animal-derived ingredients.
The taste of DC Red Shiraz is full-bodied and rich, with a bold flavour profile. The dominant flavours are of dark fruit, with notes of blackberry, plum, and black cherry. There is also a subtle spiciness to the wine, with hints of pepper and clove. The tannins are firm but smooth, providing a pleasant mouthfeel, and the oak aging provides a subtle smokiness and vanilla flavour on the finish.
About the Brand
DC (Darling Cellars) Wines is a boutique winery located in the Canberra District wine region in Australia.

The winery's vineyards are located in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range, at an altitude of around 600 meters above sea level.

DC Wines has received numerous awards and accolades for their wines, including multiple gold medals and trophies at major wine competitions in Australia and abroad. The winery's flagship wine, DC Block 1 Shiraz, is considered to be one of the finest examples of cool-climate Shiraz in Australia.
