“One of my favourite wines…lovely opulence and impressive length.” Ray Jorden The West Austalian
“…big, generous red with black berry, dark plum and earthy bouquet that’s very inviting…..finishes with grip and drive.” Huon Hooke Gourmet Traveller Wine
Careful vineyard management and controlled yields ensure premium fruit for this distinctive Shiraz style. It has a deep, vibrant colour and offers distinctive varietal characters, complemented by spicy oak nuances. A layered, well‐balanced palate structure and a persistent finish, provides a frame for the full bodied berry fruit flavours and touches of spice.
After fermentation in small batch open top fermenters, the wine spent 18 months in carefully selected fine grain American oak. A proportion of new (30%) American oak barriques were used to enhance its palate structure and flavour complexities without masking the varietal fruit characters.
Although drinking well now, it will develop with cellaring for 4+ years. Matches well with Mediterranean foods, cheeses, red meat, poultry and risotto.
