A BLEND OF SHIRAZ AND GRENACHE, THIS BRIGHT, ELEGANT WINE IS STAMPED WITH THE RICH, DISTINCTIVE CHARACTER OF THE BAROSSA. A SUPPLE TEXTURE, JUICY FRUIT AND SUBTLE OAK ARE BROUGHT TOGETHER IN A FINE, PLUSH PALATE WITH A LASTING FINISH.
VINEYARD SOURCE: Shiraz was sourced from vineyards in Stonewell and Light Pass, both of which grow lively, aromatic fruit that provides richness, structure and depth. The Grenache is from a historic contour vineyard at Greenock, with old vines grown in shallow, rocky soils that give complexity, finesse, and plush, concentrated fruit.
GRAPE VARIETY: 77% Shiraz | 23% Grenache
MATURATION: Individual blocks were matured separately in seasoned, spicy oak to soften and develop, while enhancing brightness and purity of fruit.
WINE ANALYSIS: Alc/Vol: 14.5% | Acidity: 6.0 g/L | pH: 3.45
PEAK DRINKING: We’ve created this wine as a bright, modern style that showcases plush, juicy fruit and a smooth, supple palate on release. With careful short to medium-term ageing it will develop further subtle complexity.
FOOD MATCH: Lush, lingering fruit and a fine structure make this the ideal wine to serve with plump, mid-weight, meaty dishes with bags of juicy flavour. Perfect with sticky glazed Berkshire pork ribs straight from the barbecue, roast beetroot and thyme risotto, or crispy-skinned Peking duck with hoisin sauce and all the trimmings.
COLOUR: Deep red with bright crimson hues.
NOSE: Berry aromas from loganberry, mulberry and blackberry are enhanced with a gentle spice.
PALATE: Shiraz brings plush fruit, richness and depth, while Grenache adds an alluring silky fruitiness. Berry flavours follow through from the nose, with the fleshiness of blood-plum rounding out the palate. A medium to full-bodied wine with supple texture, juicy fruit and subtle oak, brought together in a fine, structural palate with graceful tannins and a lasting finish.
