Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) The winemaking team spend time in the vineyards prior to vintage to work with the viticulturists to ensure the right style of grapes are picked for this wine. The desired fruit profile that the winemaking team look for is one of lovely primary fruit characters with some spice characters as well as skin and seed tannins for palate definition. Once the fruit has been delivered to the winery, the winemakers ensure that the up front fruit and spice characters are maintained and further enhanced and complexed with oak fermentation and maturation characters, adding a subtle spice and toast to the finished wine. This classic Australian shiraz cabernet blend is best matched to grilled meat and vegetable dishes.
