About the wine

Tasting notes

A shiraz of concentration and power that maintains elegance. Aromas of red cherry, blueberry, plum, thyme, olive, almond, pepper and spice. In the mouth it's intense and seductively textured with flavours that echo the nose. It's drinking well already but will age well if you let it!

The Grape

Shiraz or Syrah

Shiraz, or Syrah, is one of the most loved, rich and powerful red wine varieties made famous for its mineral and structured expressions from the Rhône in France and the rich and decadent fruity expressions from the Barossa Valley in Australia. Full bodied, rich in antioxidants and generously fruity, Shiraz sits proudly on the table for those that like their wine big and bold. Think violets, blackberries, plum, chocolate, pepper, black olive, liquorice, rosemary, tobacco and spice...i'm thirsty already!
