With historic connections to ancient Persia and indigenous roots in the Rhône, Shiraz has an impressive past full of legend and myth.
Nonetheless its greatest attraction is its ubiquitous appeal. The temperate maritime Margaret River climate produces a style which is elegant, bright in fruit and moderate in alcohol

Good hue of medium depth; a complex wine with a basket of spicy, savoury characters that crowd out the fruit.

Winery Tasting Notes
Brooding deep red with purple flashes .
The bouquet is beguiling – crushed cherries, ripe blueberries, and allspice with a suggestion of spicy oak in the background.
The wine is medium to full bodied, and the palate plush and velvety. The tannins are ripe and finely grained. Juicy red fruit flavours of Satsuma plum and plump cherries are enhanced by nuances of chocolate, cinnamon & clove, and malty oak. The overall impression in one of seamlessness and completeness but most importantly persistence of flavour.
Serve with Moroccan spiced grilled lamb with lentil and redcurrant salad.
Cellaring: Now to 2016.
