The color of this wine offers the first clue; it has deep, dazzling purplish red hues that suggest there is something substantial ahead. This wine has a solid, ripe core of fruit encased in fine tannins. Nothing blown out or over the top; cellar this wine for up to five years or enjoy now.
About the label
Celebrating Australia's regional folklore and inspired by the artist Sir Sidney Nolan, the label depicts one of the country's most notorious outlaws, Ned Kelly. Living much of his short life on the run, his eventual capture in 1880 only
furthered the legend... During an all night police siege of his small town hide-out, Kelly fashioned himself a hand-made suit of metal armor, comprising a heavy cylindrical helmet
resembling an inverted bucket with eyeholes plus a large breastplate. As day broke, and wearing his new protection, Kelly confidently stepped outside amidst a hail of bullets, only to be shot in the leg! He was subsequently arrested, tried
and hanged. His last words; "Such is Life."

A Customer - Oakland
This is a huge wine. Very ripe, very concentrated. Juicy, but not at all sweet or fruity. It does have nice fruit however.
Avoid drinking with peppery dishes, because of the high alcohol in this wine.
