BlazeAid Limited Edition Shiraz 2014
We are proud to announce the launch of a specially developed 2014 Limited-Edition Shiraz with all profits going to BlazeAid to assist families in rural Australia affected by bushfires and floods.
As a regional family business located close to some of the bushfire disaster zones, we are aware of the devastation felt in local communities as they endeavour to protect their way of life and prepare to rebuild in the years to come. We are proudly supporting BlazeAid – a volunteer organisation that assists with rebuilding infrastructure for farming after natural disasters, to help rural communities affected by bushfires get back on their feet as soon as possible.
The Limited Edition label celebrates the colourful, native flora of Australia as well as a symbol of community and growth.
With ripe dark berry fruits and clove black pepper spice, this incredibly powerful Shiraz provides an excellent concentration of flavour and colour. Enjoy now or cellar for up to 10 years.
