Winemaker's Notes

Rich fruit characters of black berry, plum, some liquorice and herb rub. The palate is soft with dark fruits, there’s subtle herb and spice on the finish too. A great all rounder everyone can enjoy. 78% Shiraz / 22% Cabernet Sauvignon

What's On The Bottle

My dad always said how much he loved drinking the Cabernet/Shiraz blends that were going around in the 60’s and 70’s. Not too many folks put these wines in the cellar back then because they were pretty easy to slip into straight away. Luckily, Dad put enough away for me to get a try of a few old rippers with a couple of decades of age on them which was the motivation for this traditional blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz from vines grown on our hand-tended vineyard in Vine Vale. We’ve blended these two varieties together after open fermentation, basket pressing and ageing in old casks in the family winery – just like they were made back then.
