Redbank Long Paddock Shiraz - Cabernet 2000
This tradition continues today and permits a variety of blending options, which ensures a consistency of style and quality from vintage to vintage.
Blending Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon from selected cool climate vineyards in the Ovens, King and Yarra Valleys of Victoria has enabled us to produce a wine with a myriad of flavour sensations. Aromas of red berry and spicy aniseed are well integrated with the toasty oak as a result of 12 months ageing on 2-3 year old American and French oak. Fruit flavour has been optimised through cool fermentation. Silky tannins and red berry fruits are layered across the palate of this medium-bodied, distinctly fruit driven wine.
The 2000 The Long Paddock Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon will develop favourably in the bottle over the next 2-4 years and can be enjoyed with hearty meat dishes or with char grilled steak or lamb at your next barbecue.
