Vineyards in the Riverlands get a lot of sun, and you can taste the growing season in the depths of this wine. The fruit is pure and concentrated, rich yet not jammy or cloying, this is the perfect wine for those who like real big Australian flavour. The Shiraz brings cassis and blackberry notes, along with something savoury and leathery like sun-dried tomato, while the Cabernet portion lends a touch of plum and bolsters the tannins. This is great BBQ wine, matching well with the earthy, smoky flavours of the grill.

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.
