Combines the elegance of mid-Victorian Shiraz with the depth and weight that characterise wines from Heathcote.
Medium style, excellent depth and resolve: complex & compact all at once.
Opaque black dark crimson with deep dark crimson red hue.
The nose displays refined ripe dark plum and dark cherry top notes followed by some liquorice, leather, subtle vanillin cedar and a light meatiness. Pepper and Graphite-like edge
Medium bodied the palate has dark plummy flavours alongside a lick of liquorice, cedary vanilla and spice. Elegant soft mouthfeel with very fine grained chocolatey and velvet like tannins. Aftertaste of dark plum, subtle liquorice, cedar and spice, and a glimmering slate-like spark on the finish.
Pair with lamb back strap seared with plum jus.
