Winemaker's Notes

A vibrant magenta red colour showing youthfulness whilst sophisticated on the nose with concentrated aromas of blueberries and mocha. Very appealing to drink now but built to cellar with confidence for at least ten years.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium- to full-bodied; very good structure, texture and balance; harmonious black fruits woven through quality oak and fine but ripe and positive tannins. "

Being a wine club selection, I am assuming this is typical of a highly rated Victoria Shiraz. Big, Bold and Fruit Forward yet refined finish.
