Intensely rich purple red in color with aromas of blackberry and raspberry jam. Foraged forest fruits, earthy vanilla with a hint of oak, a smattering of chocolate and a velvety, smooth finish. Perfectly cooked ribeye, hearty pasta or your favorite pizza.
Our vines grow strong and robust in the heartland of South Australia’s vineyard regions. Bright, warm summers and deep sandy loam over limestone soils ensures they flourish to produce intensely flavoured, perfectly ripened grapes.
Carefully selected parcels of Shiraz, Grenache, Malbec and Petit Verdot were picked in the cool light of a new dawn when perfectly ripe. The grapes were crushed and destemmed prior to fermentation under temperature controlled conditions to preserve their vibrant colours and flavors. Each base wine was assessed and then unified with the skill of a true artisan to create a luscious berry driven palate that is intriguing and truly indulgent. A heady blend that sings with vibrancy and finishes with a dark, earthy swoon.
Varietal Composition: 42% Shiraz, 38% Grenache, 13% Malbec, 7% Petit Verdot

Picked this up at our local liquor store recently and was pleasantly surprised. This is a great wine, especially for the price Was really surprised to read the blend of grapes. Great berry and jam flavors, a little vanilla on the palate, really smooth finish. I highly recommend this wine.
