SHIRAZ - CALIFORNIA

HAPPY GO LUCKY

HappyGoLucky.jpg

Shiraz is a laid-back grape, capable of virtually any expression in its resulting wine. Chiseled, firm, tannic and age-worthy? Ok, no problem. Jammy, fruit-forward and plump? Sure, we can do that. Happy Go Lucky asks Shiraz to find a happy medium between these two extremes, and to express itself in a style both classic and modern. The result? We got lucky - pure happiness in a glass.

WINE PROFILE

Happy Go Lucky Shiraz is both bold and full bodied, but also creamy and detailed, a rare feat for a single grape variety. Stylish and super aromatic, its aromas of violet, smoke and black pepper leap from the glass. On the palate, Happy Go Lucky is round and supple, with blackberry, blueberry, violet, and lavendar notes at its core, and a spicy, smooth finish that lasts for minutes after this Shiraz is swallowed.

Filet mignon, creamy camembert cheese, spicy meatballs, roast beef, cheesy polenta, herb-crusted salmon.
 

OPEN UP AND SAY SHIRAZ

There is perhaps no other grape variety in the world that expresses the place that it’s grown as much as Shiraz, also known as Syrah. California’s coastal valleys, in turn, endow its Shiraz wines with a distinct, unmistakable, warm and spicy character found nowhere else in the world of wine. Happy Go Lucky pays tribute to the rolling hills from which it was grown in every glass of this plump, savory, spicy California Shiraz.

With Happy Go Lucky Shiraz, the aim was to capture Shiraz’s dynamic spirit and produce a wine that speaks to the incredible skill and know-how of California’s grapegrowers. By sourcing our grapes from some of the best vineyards in the state, Happy Go Lucky manages to take influence from the Golden State and transmit it to every glass of this purple colored, velvety nectar. With soft, velvety tannins and a long finish, Happy Go Lucky transports you to this celebrated, sunny corner of California where Shiraz thrives, all in one sip.

Happy Go Lucky relies on an experienced winemaking team and a hyper-modern facility to produce a wine that is unmistakably Shiraz, and distinctively California in origin.
