Juicy and fruity, rich and ripe in style with blackberry, blackcurrant and spice flavors, subtle vanilla and black pepper. Smooth and well-balanced with a lingering finish of berries, spice and beautifully integrated oak.

50% Shiraz and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon
Cold-soaked overnight. Inoculated with selected yeast. Fermentation temperature remained between 24 -26 degrees Celsius. Regular pump-overs were performed during fermentation. Different batches of unoaked wine, wine treated with French oak staves and wine matured in 2nd and 3rd fill barrels, were all blended together to perfection.
Pairs well with red meat, especially classic recipes like roasted leg of lamb, grilled lamb chops and beef kebabs, game, duck, pasta and cheese.
