Winery Tasting Notes


The appearance is a deep, inky magenta/ black with hues of cherry red on the rim and viscous alcohol legs coating the side of the glass.


The nose reveals deep earthy characters of dried herbs and anise spice with a sweet hint of licorice and roasted coffee. The overall bouquet has a captivating intensity. Voluminous but not overpowering, it delivers dry savory flavours with toasted oak, mocha and a chocolate decadence.


The palate opens with a weighty hit of dark berry, cherry and ripe plum fruit which is something of a surprise after the expectations of the bouquet. As the first sip warms on the tongue, it quickly opens to reveal the dry savoury flavours first anticipated. The mid palate delivers toasted oak chariness and spicy rum soaked raison while solid tannins give a complimentary dry mouth-feel and structure to the finish. It is a full and flavoursome wine yet has enough restraint to leave the palate searching for the next mouthful. On the first tasting of the finished wine, I was immediately heading for the barbeque and craving for a tender cut of rib eye or marbled wagyu steak. This Shiraz is ideally suited to any cut of red meat; barbequed, char grilled or pan fried. It has enough primary fruit character to balance the savoury notes, with pepper and spice adding complexity.
