Description

Vineyard Region: Victoria
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 14.5%
Colour: It boasts a bright, vibrant crimson red colour.
Aroma: It has cassis, redcurrant and sweet berry fruit aromas along with seductive hints of cedar.
Palate: The palate is refined with delicious, rich flavours of ripe red berries and a hint of mocha. It is a well-structured wine with balanced integration of fruit and oak, good acidity and firm tannins. Still fresh and stylish, this full bodied wine will show the added complexity achieved with time in bottle. It will continue to develop in the bottle and will age gracefully for 8-10 years from vintage if cellared well.
Peak Drinking: Until 2025

Recommended food pairings: This elegant, refined Shiraz Cabernet blend makes a fine partner to red meat dishes such as a special cut of beef roasted and served with a red wine reduction sauce, a leg of lamb roasted with sprigs of rosemary and fresh garlic, or a traditional coq au vin. It is also delightful with a chunk of well-aged Cheddar at the end of a meal.

Growing Conditions: The grapes used to make this wine were grown on vineyards in the cool western Victoria regions of Pyrenees and Henty. The fruit was harvested in parcels from late February to late March at a range of baumé levels from 13.0 to 14.5.

Winemaker: Geoff Alexander

Winemaking notes: This wine is made from a blend of 75% Shiraz and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. The wine spent 12 months in French and American oak of which 20% was new. The wine was bottled with an alcohol of 14.5%, a pH of 3.52 and an acid level of 6.0 gr/l.
