Winemaker Notes

Rich, dark ruby black in color. Aromas of plum, dark fruits of the forest and chocolate. Youthful and gorgeous on the palate. Masses of ripe fruit. Plum, blackberry and spices. Full bodied yet soft, with rounded tannins and a delicious plummy and fresh berry finish.

Pair with hearty dishes such as slowly braised lamb shanks.

Enjoy now or age 10-15+ years from vintage.

A blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Shiraz and 14% Merlot.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 95
Wine Spectator
Rich, focused and superbly concentrated to show off its intense, rosemary-accented black cherry, plum and blueberry flavors, riding smoothly on a dense, generous frame that feels plush and seductive, yet the flavors come through transparently. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot. Drink now through 2017. 400 cases imported.

At present, they have been listed multiple times among Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines and received numerous other prestigious accolades.

Barossa Valley

View all wine

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers must be careful so that grapes do not become overripe.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Rhône blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mataro (Mourvèdre). White grapes can produce crisp, fresh wines from Riesling, Chardonnay, and Semillon if they are planted at higher altitudes.

Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as 1860. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, purple juice.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
