Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

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.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Lifted redcurrant, warm exotic fruits and dark chocolate combine with subtle eucalypt flavors. The wine has a generous yet stylish palate, showing dark plums, cassis, chocolate and long fine tannins giving a wine structured for ageing. The wine will reward with medium to long term cellaring.

Critical Acclaim

"Smooth, round and especially graceful, with the ripe blackberry, tar and licorice flavors settling gently into a supple frame. The finish lets it all linger like the glow of a red sunset. Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Drink now through 2016."
92 Points

"Blended of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon and 46% Shiraz, the 2004 The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz gives a deep garnet-purple color and pronounced notes of kirsch, creme de cassis, dried plums, Mediterranean herbs and a whiff of capsicum. Full-bodied and with ample flesh, it’s well structured with firm fine tannins and crisp acid, going long and earthy in the finish. Drinking now, it should cellar to 2017+."
92 Points

"Inky violet. Powerful cherry vanilla, candied plum and blackberry jam aromas verge on liqueur-like. The sweet dark fruit flavors offer serious depth and slow-mounting grip, with firm tannins providing necessary support. This turns spicier on the finish, with the rich berry and plum flavors repeating. A real mouthful, and sure to please fans of rich, full-throttle reds."
