This is a cracking red blend made by Bob Berton, under his Opal Ridge label. This is fruity Australian wine at its best, sun-ripened to perfection without the marring use of oak and blended perfectly by the skilled hand of one of Australia's most respected winemakers. On the palate it's all blackberry, black plum and spicy cracked black pepper, with an enduring acidity that belies its higher alcohol. This would be equally at home at a party as it would be with a tomato and chilli pasta dish.

In the winery, the grapes were fermented cool to retain the natural fruit flavours. No animal-based fining agents or winery aids were used during the vinification.
