Winemaker's Notes:

This Shiraz is vibrant deep red in color with purple hues. The aromas exhibit blueberries, blackberries and dark plums overlaid with anise and smoky oak. Full, round and soft, this wine shows excellent depth across palate balanced by good acidity and fine long tannins.

Pair this Shiraz with slow roasted lamb shanks with tomato relish and creamy pepper mashed potatoes.
