Winemaker's Notes

The wine shows an intense, deep plum colour which appears almost opaque as it sits in the glass. The Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend enriches the aroma with berry fruit flavours and marries well with the complex earthy, dried meats and spice characters of Shiraz and a distinctive underlay of savoury toasty oak. On the palate, the densely textured fruit and firm tannin backbone reaffirms the wine's excellent depth and sustained richness. Blackberry and spicy plum flavours dominate the finish, complementing the dryness of tannins and cedary oak. The wine will reward cellaring and is expected to begin showing at its best early in the next century.
