Winemaker Notes: This flagship wine made from the finest selection of Shiraz from each vintage is an opaque purple colour with dark purple hues. It shows superb aromas of a complex mix of violets, chocolate and cigar box lift. The 60% Langhorne Creek Shiraz in this year's wine, adds palate richness and chocolate mocha/characters on the nose. The palate is an explosion of flavour. Lashings of cassis briary fruit flavours and spiced plum followed by back palate flavours of spice, liquorice and white pepper. Fine grained soft tannins and perfect balance followed by a very long lingering finish with hints of blackberry and plum.
