Fruit Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon
Region South Australia
FRUIT Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon from our estate at vineyards in South Australia were selected at optimum ripeness. Cabernet Sauvignon is a variety that lifts in intensity when blended with others. Shiraz is the classic Australian variety and the combination of both is an ideal match.
WINEMAKING The richness of the fruit in its natural state meant that minimal intervention was required in the winery. Kept separate these parcels were left on skins for some time in order to develop the keen tannin structure, then fermented in stainless steel with the influence of French oak for complexity.
COLOUR Intense, deep ruby colour
AROMA Ripe and fruity with blackcurrants and fruitcake-like dark fruits. Hints of mocha oak.
PALATE Medium-bodied with rich fruit flavours, black pepper, cinnamon spice and subtle oak flavours. Excellent, long finish. Good to pair with red meats and barbecued foods. Great on its own if lightly chilled.
