Region: Eden & Barossa Valley, Australia
Varietal: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon & 21% Shiraz
Tasting Notes: Deep garnet red in colour, fruit is at the core of the bouquet, all red and black currants – overlaid with savoury herbs, green spices, cedar and pipe tobacco. The palate is of sophisticated precision with a refined line. Long and textured it captures the concentrated flavours and presents them with a silken grace. Under all that supple, fleshy muscle, the wine has a strong spine, structured to last and last. A wine for the future, which will not reach its peak until 2027.
Savour with slow roasted rack of veal, rubbed with sea salt, rosemary and garlic, served with roast potatoes, carrots, parsnips and steamed green vegetables or char-grilled brussel sprouts with lotus root and sweet marinated tofu.
