Winemaker's Notes

Big, bold and beautiful! The wine expresses oodles of spicy dark berry fruits, plums and earthy mint. On the palate, it's a succulent thunderbolt of pure Shiraz, right down to the last gulp. Made with structure and grip, the vibrant, juicy length lingers with a clean ‘have another glass' finish. Drink now or hide in the cellar for 3 years.

Fantastic every day drinking wine. Subtle oak and lots of rich bold juicy fruit that melds together. Buy a case, not just a bottle. Delicious.
