Winemaker's Notes:

Eight Songs Shiraz was born of our love of art and music and inspired by an operatic work, ‘Eight Songs for Mad King', first performed in the Barossa in 1993.

The colour is beautiful dark cherry with a rich garnet rim. The nose is deep chocolate, plum fruits and cedary notes. The palate is richly opulent, beautifully structured with layered, fully integrated tannins supporting the depth of primary fruit characters and spicy overtones.

Eight Songs Shiraz sings with rare roast beef, rich casseroles, beef and game pies, and of course, a great aged cheddar.
