Made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, where both varieties were fermented separately in small open fermenters, hand plunged then basket pressed. Each variety was aged separately in French oak barriques for 12 months then skilfully blended. Deeply coloured, this TRADITIONAL Australian style shows well integrated Black Currant and Violet aromas. These transfer directly to the palate providing a medium weighted though full flavoured sensation. Careful cellaring and patience will be rewarded. Well suited to roasted meat dishes.
