Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
The depth of color is dark. The aromas show intense blackberry fruit, pepper and spice. The palate is a big ripe sweet style of cedar and tobacco. Whilst a powerful style, shows a degree of softness and balance. Key element is the overwhelming fruity nature and the soft but strong oak tannin.
"Complex array of red and black fruit aromas and flavours plus spice components; 24 months in oak largely integrated."
Australian Wine Companion
"A blend of fruit from McLaren Vale, Barossa, and Coonawarra, AusVetia’s inky/ruby/purple-tinged 2002 Shiraz offers peppery scents of blackberries and cassis as well as some blatant new oak.
