Cabernet Shiraz 2013

Bronze Medal winner at the 2015 Mudgee Wine Show

This wine exhibits ripe, balanced fruit flavours that are supported by softly integrated oak characters. A firmly structured wine with fruit carrying through to a savoury finish with a touch of pepper. It has fullness in the mouth and is a wine with some length. Yummo.

Only 147 doz. made

The components of this (60%) Cabernet and (40%) Shiraz blend were carefully selected in the vineyard. Both varieties were fermented traditionally in open fermenters and hand plunged over a period of 9 days. At the completion of fermentation the must was basket pressed and the wine transferred to a combination of new and old French and American oak barrels.

Stored carefully this wine will reward 7 to 10+ years cellaring.

14.9% vol.

If you are a couple-of-glasses-of-wine-with-dinner person with wine left over in the bottle; you have the opportunity to discover a wine secret:
You are in for a pleasant surprise the next day.

The wine evolves to a drink with a whole lot of new and endearing qualities, and you're left thinking “Wow, this is no compromise a day later!”
