Dark cherry red. This wine displays a varietal Shiraz nose with raspberry, plum and red fruits coupled with savoury notes and subtle oak spice. The palate is full yet balanced with fleshy plum, black pepper and rounded out by soft tannins. Well balanced acid and tannins give a persistent length with the classic McLaren Vale fruits giving great length.

Dark red with a purple rim; an exuberant wine with a whorl of dark fruits, warm spices and a fair whack of sweet vanillin and coconut oak that sends a slippery sweet molasses-like texture across its formidable structure. There is juiciness though. And everything is in its place. This will reward those with a cellar or simply fans of Big Reds.
