Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
The color is a deep dark purple. On the nose, the wine displays an initial rush of green tobacco, parsley & bouquet garni with a waft of red licorice. Fresh fruits abound - mulberry, the most obvious. Upon a swirl, cedar, spice and a flirt of toasted
marshmallow. With air, the generosity and
sweetness of fruit is shyly revealed. On the palate, notes of rhubarb and berried fruits to the fore and at the other end - a kick off the back-palate of crushed black pepper. Not forgetting the mid-palate - wonderfully integrated oak & spice and a 360-degree propulsion of graphite-like tannins. Cola
and black olive flavors descend with an exuberant swirl - reflective of this wine's youth...
Pair with lamb seasoned with Moroccan herbs and spices.
"Strong color; black fruit aromas have a caress of oak; the medium-bodied palate opens up to cherry, plum and blackberry fruits with precisely judged oak and tannin support; a long future."

"The 2008 Bin 128 Shiraz was aged 12 months in French hogsheads, 26% new. Very deep garnet-purple in color, it has pronounced spiced meat notes over warm blackberry, blueberry pie filling, mincemeat, black and green peppercorns and a little tar.

There is a small strip of soil, about nine miles long and two miles wide, called Terra Rossa, or red soil/earth. It is the...Read More About Coonawarra
