Wine Colour

Intense black cherry.

Wine Bouquet

Fennel, vanilla, coffee bean. Intense berry lift with underlying biscuity oak.

Wine Palate

Fleshy, supple, velvety shiraz throughout the palate. Oak tannins act in a supporting role to enhance the fruit flavours giving depth and structure to the wine. The palate is tight with firm astringency.

Suggested Food Matching

Rich meats or with a plate of fine cheeses.

Critics Notes

“Sweet fruit lift and strong, old oak. Great depth of soft, rich flavour. Slightly buttery. Excellent length.” 3½ STARS Winestate Magazine (July/August 1999)

Cellaring Notes
