Recommend opening up to 3 days ahead of drinking, but at least open a few hours prior to drinking for aeration and decanting.
Deep crimson red with a purple hue.
Aromas of blueberries and prunes, with notes of pepper, cigar box, herbs and hints of leather.
Wonderful depth of palate, with herbs and spice, blueberries and soft, generous tannins. A well-balanced wine with great natural acid.
- Winemaking Notes
The 2017 fruit was handpicked. Naturally fermented in open 500L vats with gentle hand plunging each day. The wine has been matured in used French oak Hogsheads for 12 months.
- Growing Conditions
The resulting wet soils from the 2017 growing season provides a good foundation for our dry grown vines. Cool wet weather early in the year was followed by a long spell of warm weather, perfect for slow ripening and delivering well-structured, aromatic fruit.
- Food Pairing
A perfect pairing for this shiraz cabernet sauvignon blend is a BBQ – spiced sausages and lamb chops or char grilled spatchcock.
