Description

TASTING NOTES

Aroma

A lifted bouquet of purple fruits leads to hints of mocha, pepper, allspice and dusty oak.

Palate

Soft, round and seductive, with bright fruit characters of boysenberry, blackberry and restrained oak.  The tannins are fine gained and well integrated.

Peak Drinking

This is an ideal wine for early consumption, but will soften further with ageing.

Wine Style

This wine is the seventh release of our classic Australian red blend, designed to be softer and more approachable.

Winemaking

This blend of estate grown Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon has been minimally handled and therefore retains primary fruit characters, coupled with a balanced acidity and a refined tannin structure.  The wine was made utilising open fermenters, basket pressed, then matured in a combination of old and new American and French Oak, prior to bottling.
