Varieties
85% Shiraz

Winemaking
The Shiraz is grown on clay loam soils. The vines are 18 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 14 years old and are also trained to a single cordon with foliage wires. Both the Shiraz and Cabernet grapes were harvested at 13 Be. 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 ensuring that only soft tannins would be present in the final wine. The wine was then stored on French oak staves for a few months prior to bottling.15% Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Note
A deep wine, this Shiraz Cabernet displays mulberry fruit and spices with hints of dark chocolate on the palate and a long, balanced finish. Silky tannins give structure and balance fruit sweetness.

Serving Suggestions
Made for immediate enjoyment, serve on its own or with all kinds of red meat (even better if seasoned with light spices or herbs) and pasta dishes.
