Region: Barossa Valley, Australia
Varietal: 98% Shiraz & 2% Viognier
Tasting Notes: Intense, lifted aromatics of dense cherry plum and dark chocolate all come to the fore with an opulent fruit profile of mulberry and five-spice. A silky textured palate of deep red cherry fruits, clove and liquorice all interwoven with hints of sweet spice and cinnamon. The layers and diverse fruit characters continue to evolve in the glass with hints of ironstone, anise, blackberry, and pepper all becoming more persistent in the finish.
Pairs well with grilled or roast beef, ribs, spicy sausage, big beefy stews, strong or hard cheese.
