Winemaker's Notes

The 2008 Razor's Edge is a wine greater than it's parts. Bright red in color, Grenache once again provides an intense lift with touches of dark cherry, minerals and spice. The Shiraz component provides structure to the wine and tightens the lifted notes of the Grenache. It is a pure expression of fruit, displaying the attributes of a vibrant blend with plenty of character. This leads to a concentrated and well structured palate with ripe cherry and blackberry fruits. The tannins are soft and supple yet giving a long. lingering finish. It is a palate that begs for more!

Critical Acclaim

"Fully ripe and verging on jammy, this 75-25 blend is nonetheless charming, with raspberry fruit cosseted by lashings of vanilla. It’s round in the mouth and exceedingly supple, picking up intriguing dusty spice, cocoa and coffee notes on the finish. A notable value for drinking over the next 6–12 months. "
