($27.50 per bottle - $165 per six-pack)
15.1% Alc. Shiraz 79%, Malbec 12% and Cabernet Sauvignon 9%.
Garnet red colour. The nose is so alluring. Sniff after sniff
reveals earth, cut meats and blood sausage. Its intoxicating dark
boysenberry aromas keep you coming back for more. The flavours are bold
yet silky, supple, gritty and tightly wound. It's opulent with a
palate full of blue fruits. Blueberry, plums and tart red cherry are
wonderfully primary. The back palate is long and sophisticated. Partly
matured in concrete vats to further highlighting the pristine fruit in
this wine. Enjoy over the next 7-15 years.
Winery tasting note
High quality Heathcote Shiraz lent extra depth, complexity and muscle
through judicious blending with Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Matured for 22 months in seasoned oak hogsheads. Full bodied and
concentrated with exotic florals and black cherry. Enjoy now and
over the next few years.
