Winemaker's Notes:

This feisty combination of Grenache, Shiraz and Viognier oozes with well-ripened blackberry, plum and currant notes. Made with structure and grip, the vibrant, juicy length lingers with a 'have another glass' finish. Drink now or hide in the cellar for 3 years.

Food Pairings: Spinach salad with goat cheese and dried cherries. Penne pasta with feta, peppers and sausage. Soy-ginger flank steak with grilled eggplant
