    Colour: Crimson red. Nose: Rich Christmas cake and summer pudding aromas are obvious on the nose with more subtle cinnamon / spicy oak notes adding complexity on the nose. Palate: Deeper, darker fruits are more obvious on the palate with plums, blueberry and dark cherries. Tannins and fruit are well balanced with Shiraz providing a fleshy mouthfeel and Cabernet delivering length and structure, with varietal, chalky tannins. Dark chocolate notes linger on the finish in typical Koonunga Hill style. Food Matches: Ideal with rich tomato based Mediterranean dishes.

    Bottle says it shows a dark berry, chocolate and spice character enhanced by a subtle oak nuance.
