Splendidly fruited and complex, the wine shows blackcurrant, spiced cherry, cedar and subtle dried herb notes on the nose. It's equally attractive on the palate delivering terrific fruit power combined with spicy nuances, finishing long and delectably appealing.

Vintage Conditions
2016 was a standout vintage for all red varieties. The characteristics of our Cabernet and our Shiraz that year were perfect to create our popular signature red blend, a classic Australian Cab Shiraz. Autumn and winter were dry and cool which meant the start of the growing season was slightly delayed. Rainfall was low and some irrigation was used to replenish the soil moisture. Relatively mild summer climatic conditions with warm days and cool nights. An absence of extreme heat ensured the fruit was able to ripen evenly and the flavors intensify.

Vine Clone: LC14 and BVRC30

Wine Reviewer Comments

Deep ruby with a nose of sweet cherry, dark berry jam, fig leaf, orange rind, bay and woody spice. The palate is long and driven by rich and fresh flavors of blackberry, cassis, blueberry, red cherry and plum. A grip of oak tannins gives texture while a hum of berry acidity carries and lifts. It’s long, structured and fades with a tail of chocolate and red berries.
