Winemaker's Notes

An intriguing blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, made from a brilliant vineyard that year in, year out exhibits amazing fruit purity.

A gorgeous purple red colour. Upfront red fruits and cedar spice on the nose. The palate has lashings of unctuous cassis and liquorice supported by gentle oak handling, with fine chalky tannins this is an excellent food wine that has charmed visitors to our cellar door.

"The screw cap finished 2003 Shovel Blanc is one of the most successful blends of Merlot (70%) and Cabernet Franc (30%) I have tasted outside of Bordeaux. It exhibits abundant amounts of cranberry, cherry, and red currant like fruit, good spice, a subtle integration of wood, fine elegance, and a medium bodied finish." - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
