BACK TO WINES

100% Shiraz
100% Margaret River

Intense dark cherry fruit flavours with great structure and complexity.

A full crimson-purple wine with an intense black cherry palate, exquisite balance and lingering hints of smoky oak.

Matured for 14 months in Burgundian new and seasoned French oak barriques to give an elegant medium bodied shiraz. This wine is great drinking now and will continue to improve with cellaring up to 2024.
