Description:

The colour in this Shiraz is dark and rich with a garnet hue. The bouquet is ripe and lifted with dark plums, hints of caraway seed, spice and cedar. The traditional method of open fermentation has allowed the palate to be bold yet balanced with flavours of dark chocolate, black cherries, plum, sage and will balanced subtle oak. The tannins are soft, complex and lingering on the finish.

 

Winemaker’s notes:

The 2016 vintage was a text book season with a long ripening period allowing the grape phenolics and flavour to ripen symbiotically with the sugar maturity. Once in the winery every care was taken during ferment to give the wine maximum time on skins to extract the depth of flavour and colour that this wine exhibits. This is a fantastic example of a well grown and well-made Barossa Valley Shiraz that is ready to drink now and will also continue to reward the patient for the next 15+ years

 

Serving hints:

Serve at room temperature with rib eye steak, grilled lamb or braised Kangaroo tail. Also great with a hearty beef stew.

Description:

Deep blackish purple with a crimson hue. Ripe aromas of blackcurrant and black Cherie fruit with mocha oak tones underneath intermix with cedeary tobacco dominate the nose over some spice and black olive. Full bodied, richly flavoured Cabernet Sauvignon with vibrant ripe blackcurrant, cherry and plum flavours complexed by spicy mocha oak notes. Smooth, fine chalky tannins add to the layered finish.

 

Winemaker’s notes:

The 2015 vintage is remembered as one of the shortest and fastest vintages. Mild ripening conditions, with below average temperatures set up the perfect ripening. A great vintage was capped off by above average grape yields and high quality fruit. Delicate flavours with great fine acidity in the Cabernet, while the Shiraz has full ripeness and deep intense colours balance by really solid natural acidity.

 

Serving hints:

Succulent roast lamb shoulder with roasted vegetables, beef stir fry with fresh pickled ginger or sticky BBQ beef ribs.
