Wine Description

This highly treasured Shiraz takes its name from the vitner's pet Kookaburra bird. The wine has an amazing dark reddish-purple color with added fragrance and flower perfume by the Viognier. Red currant, blueberry, herbs and cedar flavors tail into an incredible finish. In keeping true to their winemaking, d’Arenberg still basket crushes all of their grapes.

    Ruby-red. Superripe aromas of blackberry, licorice and mint. Juicy, spicy and firm, with dark berry and licorice flavors nicely supported by firm acids. Still a bit tight and youthfully tart today, but this impressively primary wine has the backbone to age.
