Winemaker's Notes:

Cabernet Sauvignon 52%, Shiraz 32%, Merlot 17%.

To the eye, the wine is a bright ruby bed.

On the nose, the wine offers aromas of strawberries, candy floss and dark ripe cherries. Shows sleek oak spice and a delicate smoked bacon essence infused with a leathery feel from the Shiraz.

The palate is refined, with good body and a richly structured mid palate. Shiraz seems to dominate the palate and gives a juicy feel to the wine.
