Light & Fruity

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Deep crimson red with vibrant hues. Ripe berry fruit and plum with subtle aromas of spice, dark chocolate and eucalyptus. The palate is rich and mouth filling with intense ripe fruit characters. Dark chocolate and vanilla characters complement the generous red berry flavors. The wine has a well balanced structure with great texture and a long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Nicely crafted, this Clare Valley Shiraz delivers an unusual level of balance and elegance for the price. Herbal, peppery aromas lead off, followed by raspberry fruit framed by vanilla. The tannins are soft but present, the fruit sweetness balanced by crisp acids. It’s not so much a flashy wine as a balanced one to pair with a variety of meat dishes. "
