A sophisticated shiraz from a young winery in Echunga. This wine is still looking youthful and shows typical shiraz black fruit, pepper and spice along with some subtle violet and even menthol characters. The palate shows much less pepper, with black and sour cherries, and some subtle vanilla, cedar and cloves. With lovely flavour development and mouthfeel, this wine isn’t cheap but is a class act. Splash out for a special occasion.

Drink with beef Wellington or a hard, strongly flavoured cheese such as cheddar.
