The Gamekeeper’s Shiraz Cabernet blends the juicy plum and cherry Shiraz notes with the blackcurrant and blackberry Cabernet Sauvignon notes. The inclusion of the Cabernet provides a firm structure and the classic minty characteristics which the variety is renowned for.

Medium purple-red; a long-established label that has always delivered an easy drinking style with abundant, ripe black and red fruit flavours; it is possible the alcohol may have been reduced by the use of reverse osmosis (perfectly legal).

Winery Tasting Notes
54% Shiraz, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Deep ruby red, with youthful magenta hues.
This is the original classic Barossan blend; it brings together the rich, full plum and cherry flavours of Shiraz with lifted violets, blackcurrants, blackberries and slightly herbal characters of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Great with a hearty winter stew laced with fresh vegetables and Barossa bacon.
Enjoy while young fresh and vibrant.
