Wine Review: This bright red colored Shiraz based red wine is Excellent and drinking beautifully right now. It opens with an inviting boysenberry bouquet with hints of leather. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and really smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty black cherry and boysenberry blend with notes of cedar and a hint of strawberry. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely with well managed tannins. This wine is ready to go now and would be perfect with a filet mignon at your favorite steak house. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Fragrance & headiness to the fore, this wine exudes intense perfume, red fruits, floral notes & spice. The addition of Mataro & co-fermentation with white grapes Viognier & Marsanne intensify the Shiraz character while providing complexity, richness & generosity. Primary fruit leads onto savoury graphite & white pepper underpinned by stalkiness & concentrated meatiness. A medium-bodied yet weighty & concentrated palate. This is not shrinking violet! Features a fresh, clean & detailed mouthfeel. Generous fruit plumpness, assertive tannins & crisp acidity are given additional volume by co-fermented Mataro & white varieties & support by juicy stalk tannins & crisp acidity are given to poise & length with fruit to flesh out over time.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
