Wine Review: This pitch black colored Shiraz from the Barossa Valley opens with an inviting blackberry jam bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, rich and fills your mouth with flavors. Those flavors are a blend of blackberry and black currant with nicely integrated old oak. I also detected hints of black licorice and a dash of black pepper. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for quite a while. This Shiraz is a perfect fireplace wine to enjoy with sharp cheddar cheese. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Appearance: Deep red in colour with youthful crimson tints. Nose: Impressive hints of cocoa, rich chocolate and spicy French oak flavours combine seamlessly on the nose. Palate: Round and textural in style with a compelling core of black fruits, cocoa and oak spices harmoniously coming together in an engaging palate experience. Pair with: Slow roasted shoulder of lamb, with rosemary, garlic and preserved lemon
