Winemaker's Notes

A deep, vivid, violet colour. On the nose there are berry, blackcurrant and liquorice aromas. The palate is full and rich with spice, berry and some black pepper flavours obvious. The wine is well balanced, with a persistent finish that is complimented by some fine tannin. It is ready for immediate consumption and would be an ideal match for rich pasta dishes, BBQs and game.

Critical Acclaim

"(86% shiraz, 10% malbec and 4% cabernet sauvignon): Bright ruby-red. Exotic, spice-accented dark berry compote aromas are deepened by notes of licorice and bitter chocolate. Supple and open-knit, offering cherry-cola and cracked pepper flavors that become spicier with air. Finishes on a smoky note, with gentle tannins that come on late. Lots of fruit and intensity for the money."
