About the wine

Tasting notes

Dense and deep, bright and lively crimson-red. Aromas of Venison carpaccio with a sweet balsamic reduction and freshly-pressed olive oil, sticky rice pudding, apricot pip, vanillin and coconut husk, subtle sweet and spiced sandalwood, ground cumin and wintergreen notes remind of an eighteen-month sabbatical in oak. An advancing wave of flavours, understated power and charm. The swell builds and a more persuasive wave follows … and then more, with each sip.

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!
