Alcohol/vol 14.5%
A rather dark appearance with a vivid purple hue suggesting a complex dry red. The nose is particularly intense, with peppery spice, hints of fragrant flower and perfume aromas, plus nectarines, apricots, ginger and herbs from the small parcel of viognier that the Shiraz is cofermented with. On thepalate the Shiraz is more dominant. There is some sweeter fruit charachters like blackberry, blueberry and boysenberry. The palate is rich and generous and soft silky tannins.

With 4% Viognier, the nose of this Shiraz-based wine offers an appealing mix of plum, fig cake, mocha, olive and large helpings of savory spice. The palate is powerfully tannic and chalky in texture. Nevertheless, the spicy, brambly fruit finds its way to the fore, providing much needed softness. Give this a decant or air time or plenty of protein if drinking now. Drink until 2028.

Dense and rustic, with chewy tannins and notes of dried black olive, leather and mineral that add savory details to the blackberry and huckleberry flavors at the core. Shiraz and Viognier. Drink now through 2030. 5,100 cases imported.
