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: The 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, and bush vines grown on the deep sands of Vine Vale, that give complexity, finesse, and plush, concentrated fruit.
GRAPE VARIETY: 75% Shiraz | 25% 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: 6.5 g/L | pH: 3.41
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 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 pancakes.
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 soft, approachable palate with plush tannins and a lingering finish.
