A seamless wine that is rich, yet soft and sumptuous. Vibrant berry fruits with sweet spice and balanced oak.

Pair with steak, lamb, barbeques and hearty stews.

About Ross Estate:

Located in the small town of Lyndoch in the Barossa Valley, Ross Estate Wines is a family owned winery established on old vineyards in 1999. A combination of young spirits and a veteran winemaker of over forty vintages has seen this modern winery reach new heights. Ross Estate's aim - to produce wines of consistent quality, from the soil up. In short, to capture "The Soul of the Vine". The style is truly Barossa, encapsulating regional fruit flavours and enhancing them with well balanced oak, using fruit sourced solely from Ross' estates in the Barossa Valley.
