Expert Reviews

A blend of pressings of Shiraz (62%)/Cabernet Sauvignon (33%)/Dolcetto (5%) assembled from barrels of 2006 vintage with some 'reserve' barrels of the best vintages over the past 10 years. It is neither fearsomely tannic or alcoholic, rather a medium- to full-bodied wine with licorice, blackberry and blackcurrant fruit flavours. Rating 94 - Drink by 2019, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2009).

Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Varieties

A blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Dolcetto.

Colour

Dense purple with ruby hues.

Aroma

Aromas of ripe blackcurrant, blackberry and dark cherry fruits with a hint of eucalypt and spice and cedar oak barrel complexity.

Palate

From exceptional vintages over the last decade Warrenmang has kept aside the robust and powerful basket pressings of Pyrenees Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. With their fortress-like tannin structures when young, these wines have mellowed with the years to become the basis of a palate that is rich and mouth filling. By carefully selecting and blending the best of the barrels this wine has been assembled to exhibit immense power and balance. The layers of fruit are entwined through this structure, their complexity derived not only from varietal and seasonal peculiarities, but also from the integration of their age. From the ripe blackberry and spice of the Shiraz, to the blackcurrant and earthy tobacco of the Cabernet Sauvignon and inky Dolcetto it has melded perfectly with cedar and chocolate from barrel ageing.
