Product Information
Sales Information
Opaque purple, with a big nose of blueberry jam and new leather. The fun continues on the palate, where sweet tannins meld with lush fruit, star anise and eucalyptus to give an overall impression of indulgence and wanton abandon.

Enjoy this red on its own or with roast rack of lamb or mature hard cheeses.

The Vineyard
A blend of 95% Shiraz and 5% Viognier that was co-fermented to fix colour, enhance mouthfeel and encourage lifted, exotic aromatics. Blending Shiraz with a soupçon of white Viognier is commonly done in France's northern Rhône, where some of the world's most-prestigious wines are made. Once fermentation was complete, a portion of the young wine was oaked so as to bring additional complexity, spice and richness to the final wine.

The red grapes for this wine were sourced mostly from the Barossa Valley, Australia's world-famous Shiraz region. The white portion was grown elsewhere in the state, however, meaning that the end wine trades under the more expansive South Australia GI.
