The generous dark and red berry flavours of the Shiraz flow through the structured palate of the Cabernet Sauvignon and highlight the fragrant cassis and blueberry aromas. Robust tannins edge the deep fruit and earthy minerality as found in many an established McLaren Vale red. A delightful mulberry jam will round off a sip and pairing will be excellent with lamb, beef or hearty meals.

An estery bouquet with a lift of dark berry and cassis aromas and a rich well-balanced palate with good depth and length of flavours. An elegant wine.
Very deep red/purple colour, with a subdued, slightly earthy bouquet while the palate is full-bodied and gritty textured, with some slightly rustic, chewy tannins and good persistence. A good honest glass of full-bodied red.
The rich blackcurrant aromas reflect the best of McLaren Vale cabernet. The dark berry of shiraz adds substance to a satisfying palate that finishes with a caress of oak.
A mix of blueberry, mulberry, leafy herbs, cigar box and truffley scents and flavours. Feels generous, thickset but layered, with sheets of powdery tannin adding some body and chew. Nice to see a muscular red with such control and drive. Satisfying, strong red wine.
Ripe berry and currant, with supple oak support. Perfectly ripe fruit on the palate is silky and fine, with the Cabernet adding structure. The finish is long, supple and elegant, with a drying, textural finish that gets a touch chewy. An impressive wine that deserves time in the cellar.
Cabernet and shiraz go hand in glove, as proven once again here. This is excellent. Firm, powerful, well textured and long. Importantly, it’s been ripened and picked appropriately; it’s not been overcooked or overdone. It tastes of cloves and blackcurrant, vanilla cream, cedarwood and woodsmoke, the tannin flecked with dust. It feels hearty and polished at once; it’s so well balanced that it drinks well now, but it has both the sturdiness and the stuffing to age, and to age well. Drink 2022 – 2032+.
