Winemaking
The Shiraz is grown on clay loam soils. The vines are 15 years old and are trained to a single cordon with two foliage wires. The Cabernet Sauvignon is planted on clay loam soil with a thin top layer of limestone pebbles. The vines are 10 years old and are also trained to a single cordon with foliage wires. Both the Shiraz and Cabernet grapes were harvested at 14.0 Be, insuring that flavour and colour indices were at the maximum. The must was fermented at temperatures between 18 and 25 degrees in order to help extract flavour and colour components from the grape skins. The skins were then gently pressed, with only the free run fraction being kept insuring that soft tannins would be present in the final wine.  The wine was then stored on French oak staves and allowed to mature prior to bottling.

Tasting Note
Elegant, full bodied red wine featuring aromas of spicy plums and cassis over smoky oak. the palate shows ripe plums, blackcurrants and subtle vanillin oak flavours with firm tannins and a long finish.

Serving Suggestion
Ideal with red meats, mature cheeses and full flavoured vegetarian dishes.
