The objective is to create a youthful, rich and mellow wine. Designed to drink now. A wine of varietal fruits but only the hint of American oak. Oak will add complexity to the flavours and enhance the fruit. This wine must show area characteristics, varietal fruit and have plenty of flavour.

A pleasant, well balanced, medium-bodied shiraz; goes along to get along style. Rating 88 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2014)
Winery Tasting Notes
Medium depth with bright vibrant reds.
The aroma is of fresh red berries with a hint of spice, while showing the excellent cool climate berries. The subtle smoky notes from the oak give this Shiraz a fresh complexity.
The palate is soft and round with a very smoky oak flavour to complete this fresh medium bodied Coonawarra Shiraz. The flavours are a blend of oak, red current and a hint of spice. This wine has very soft tannins which gives a richness and length to the wine. A very drinkable wine. A wine that will age well, but has enough softness to be enjoyed on release.
