We describe this as our "Monday-to-Thursday wine" - a delightful, medium-bodied style for everyday drinking.
Made by BlackJack from Cabernet and Shiraz grapes grown at Blackjack Vineyards in Harcourt.
Fermentation took place in traditional open fermenters, with hand-plunging of the cap ensuring complete but gentle extraction of colour and flavour. The wine was matured in a mixture of new , two and-three-year-old French and American oak barriques. To maximise retention of fresh flavours, this wine has been sealed with screwcaps.

Winery Tasting Notes
Medium to brick red in colour and somewhat Bordeaux like in terms of structure and flavour profile.
Elegant aromas of blackcurrant,tea leaf, cinnamon, nutmeg and spice are present on the nose.
The palate is long,savoury and silky smooth with plenty of fruit woven through quality oak that adds texture and weight.
Although this wine is made for drinking in the short term , it will, under appropriate conditions, benefit from cellaring for two to three years or more.
