The Oddbins Take

The riddle of riddle creek has nothing to do with the curious apparition of Mr Riddle and his purple dog, but how on earth they make such an approachable yet characterful Shiraz. Its juicy and ripe palate, backed up with hints of pepper and mocha, has inspired chin-scratching and general wonderment for years. Really, you would expect a riddle to be harder work than this. Maybe we’re better at riddles than we thought!

De Bortoli are a fast expanding wine producer with vineyards all over Australia. Riddle Creek Reserve Shiraz is produced at their original winery in Riverina, New South Wales. De Bortoli is a family-run business which was established in 1924, it is now the third generation of De Bortolis who are taking the reigns. They are famed for producing some world class wines.

The region of Riverina it the largest producing wine region in New South Wales; it has a warm, Mediterranean climate and its soils are made up of sand and clay.

The grapes are fermented with the skins left on for seven days. The wine then spends a short amount of time aging in oak.

This typically bold Australian Shiraz has intense blackberry flavours with hints of peppery spice and coffee. It has a bright glistening, ruby appearance and a friendly, approachable sweet, summer fruit aroma.
