This wine is highly aromatic, with pretty red fruits and exotic spice. The palate is medium bodied and delicious, showing wild strawberry, dried cranberry and rhubarb flavours. There's some nice dried herb and baking spice nuances to this wine, supported by decent amounts of acidity and tannin. It's fresh and vibrant now, however, this wine will mellow further with some age.
Blend: 50% Grenache, 50% Shiraz
A very attractive array of raspberry-driven aromas with a sleek, drinkable palate. Super fine tannins carry redcurrant, red-plum, raspberry and blueberry flavors in linear mode. Stunning value, like a good Cotes du Rhone. Drink over the next decade.

Juicy, plump cherry, blackberry and blueberry flavors mingle with vanilla bean, mocha and nutmeg details in this red. The tannins are firm, and there's a savory, sanguine note in the background, plus a lingering hint of roasted chestnut. Shiraz and Grenache. Drink now.
