Shiraz (45%), Grenache (40%) and Mourvédre (15%) have been planted in the Barossa since the 1840's. Aged in seasoned American (60%) and French (40%) oak. The wine displays a medium depth crimson color with purple hues. The aromas are of juicy Satsuma plums, blueberry and dark cherries, they leap out of the glass with hints of vanilla and earthiness. The palate is well-balanced and full-bodied flowing with briar berries and spice. The finish has good length, velvety tannins and a slight savory note. Pair with grilled meat, peppered steaks, burgers topped with mushrooms and gruyere cheese, or slowly braised Lamb shanks.
Peak drinking will be from 2010 – 2017.
