About the wine

Tasting notes

The mild vintage conditions provided the perfect slow ripening framework for Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz in Wrattonbully. The resultant wine is classic Australian, with black fruit characters and peppery notes from the cool climate Shiraz and velvety tannins and a lovely soft texture from the Cabernet Sauvignon.

Expert review

Deep ruby with a touch of purple and a nose of violets, lavender, plum, blue and black fruits, dark chocolate, black olive, peppered roast beef, walnut and a captivating earthiness that only Wrattonbully can provide. In the mouth it’s beautifully structured, generous but balanced and boasts the depth and richness that comes from ripe Cabernet and Shiraz without heaviness and love handles. Classy, short and fine grained tannins fan across the front palate and hold while intense flavours of black and blue fruit, hints of sweet beetroot and earthy leaves moves like a flood light of flavour to the midpalate that shows a touch of sweet red brambly berries, soft oak and an underlying red earth minerality. It feels like more of a Shiraz dominant blend, even though there’s twice as much Cabernet in the blend. From here, it slows in momentum, as if frozen in time, and simply needs some cellar aging to reach its full potential and length.
