AROMA AND PALATE
The bouquet is rich and dense, showcasing the Barossa’s acclaimed regional characteristics. Fresh fruitcake and licorice are balanced by slight leafy notes from the Cabernet. Oak adds lovely spice and toast nuances, and there is a slight peaty edge. This is a wine that inundates the senses.
The Shiraz imparts dark, sweet fruits and lush, fine tannin that the Cabernet restrains with structural drive and vibrant cassis. The careful selection of 100% new oak, predominantly French, supports the fruit while adding texture, layering and length to the palate. With its vibrancy, freshness and structure, this sophisticated wine has the potential to age gracefully.
Enjoy with red meat dishes with robust and concentrated flavours.
