Fermented with minimal working of the juice to reduce extraction and create a soft, medium bodied approachable style. Aged with American and French oak to give lifted aroma and toasty notes. Low acid levels give the wine softness and easy drinkability.
A rich and ripe Cabernet Shiraz, a touch of spice and well balanced tannin for a serious wine. The palate shows white pepper spice, backed up with an elegant tannin and smoky oak. Duck or slow cooked lamb shanks would be perfect with this blend.
