“I have always been fascinated by the way Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon interact when blended – the sum becoming greater than that of its parts. This wine shows the richness and generosity of Shiraz, with a backbone of structure provided by the Cabernet, to ensure a long future of up to 20 years” – Peter Barry. This wine from Clare Valley offers a deep, broody nose, with aromas of sweet leather and sweet dried meats. On the palate, the savoury leather character continues with dark fruits and brambles. This sumptuous wine has a good weight through the mid and back palate with a warm embrace to finish.
Distinct parcels of fruit are selected to make wines that reflect the vineyard from which the grapes are grown. Picked at optimum ripeness from our Watervale vineyard and matured in French oak, this wine shows the elegance and restraint of this cool site. Dark and broody on the nose, with intense aromas of plum, cherry and blackberry with savoury spiciness and dark florals. Plush, sweet black and blue fruits flow on the palate, with a touch of spice and fine savoury tannin to finish. This wine pairs well with meat that has robust & spiced flavors, as well as beef-centred curries (beef madras curry).
