Winemaker's Notes:

This wine offers lifted pepper berry notes typical of cool-climate Shiraz with subtle oak characters which impart a sweet, vanilla cinnamon note. The palate is dense yet supple, offering a harmonious balance between plush tannins, rounded texture and bright cherry fruit. The finish is clean and crisp with hallmark spice reflecting the cool vintage.

About Plantagenet:

The first vines were planted in 1968 at "Bouverie" Denbarker. These consisted of 4 1/2 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Plantagenet Wines now has boosted the total acreage to 100, including Malbec, Riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. Plantagenet aims to make elegant, structured wines that have complexity, finesse and balance.
