Wine Review: This pitch black colored Aussie blend opens with a fragrant ripe blackberry bouquet with hints of new leather and blueberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic, juicy and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a tasty blend of blackberry, boysenberry and gentle oak. There is a touch of minerality and hint of red plum and black pepper as well towards the end. It’s a pretty complex wine. The finish is dry and its well managed tannins stick around for a little while. This wine would pair perfectly with beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Colour: Vibrant purple red. Nose: Attractive red and black fruit with savoury notes. Palate: Generous with good intensity of blackberry fruit and Christmas cake character. Appealing texture with soft tannin backbone.

Organic status: not organic
