Perhaps a little more serious a wine than the name suggests. Blend of Shiraz 72%, Tempranillo 12%, Grenache 11%, Merlot 5%. While providing affordable every day drinking, this wine definitely delivers plenty on the quality front. Drink now and over the next 3-5 years.

A blend of shiraz, tempranillo, grenache and merlot, 100% Clare Valley-grown. A thoroughly eclectic blend, and there is neither need or ability to unpick the parts; this is a very nice wine with a tapestry of interwoven fruit and tannins, ready now, and a considerable bargain. Rating 91 - Drink by 2015 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JUN/2013
"Very minty, gumleafy aromas but the wine is intense and lively, with good colour and deep flavour. Crisp mouth-feel and a firm finish. None of the grape varieties dominates. Now to eight years."

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep red, purple tints
Attractive aromas of ripe black and red fruits including, plum, mulberry and raspberry with hints of spice, chocolate and mint. Oak very much in the background.
Soft, rich and juicy with intense berry, plum and chocolate flavours. Fine, ripe tannins and balanced acid add some texture and length.
