Shotfire Quartage is based on the five traditional red varieties found in the Bordeaux region of France (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec). Our winemakers use at least four of the varieties to create the blend each year (occasionally, they can get over excited and use all five). The blend is a reminder to not only look to the future but also to keep an eye on the past and tradition.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep red with a purple hue, this wine is a monster on release.
The 2012 Shotfire Quartage has lifted aromas of cassis, plum, dried thyme, subtle eucalyptus and spicy oak.
The palate doesn't disappoint with a multitude of flavours melding together to form the wines flavour. On release the tannins for the fruit and oak are firm and long, the generosity of fruit is balanced by an elegance provided by natural acidity. The wine is full bodied and complete.
