The mid palate's ripe berry flavors will with time reveal more complex characters such as dark chocolate liquorice wood smoke and warm leather as the wine ages and evolves.
Wine BuyerDeep, dark red with purple hues. Intense, lifted aromas of ripe, dark plum, blackberry, sweet vanilla and spice with light subtle hints of blueberry and blackcurrant fruit, all portend to a generous palate that is full flavored, balanced and long. The palate, though big and opulent, has an elegant, smooth texture, some mocha and cedar oak character combined with ripe, dark berry fruit and fine tannins. The mid palate's ripe berry flavors will, with time, reveal more complex characters such as dark chocolate, liquorice, wood smoke and warm leather, as the wine ages and evolves. A full bodied, rich rewarding Shiraz that expresses the warmth of the Australian vintage and the riper flavors, obtainable from the renowned Limestone Coast regions - a wine both generous and harmonious. Excellent drinking now but will reward careful cellaring for six to seven years.

A rounded, soft, silky textured palate with slightly savoury tannins and good length. Finishes with rich dark berry fruit and delicate spearmint and herbs. A beautifully textured, generous Australian Shiraz with rich berry fruit, a firm but rounded structure and pleasant persistence of flavors on the finish.
