Immediate flavours of satsuma plums, boysenberry and dark chocolate are wound together with fine powdery coating tannins providing the structure and flavour persistence of the wine. Oak flavours are present with hints of cedar and spice adding complexity and texture. Balanced and approachable for drinking in its youth or if you prefer cellar over the next decade.

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!
