Dark red-purple in colour. Black cherry, plum and some fleshy characters on the nose. Medium-ripe palate showing good fruit characters married to fine oak before nice long finish. A very nicely made shiraz showing the cooler spectrum characters. Fruit sourced from the Frankland River Region 50km north of Mount Barker, the characteristically cool climate of the district ensures slow ripening of the grapes, which also allows for the development of rich flavour and quality grape juice. Grown on ancient gravely loams in the Great Southern region of Western Australia, an area renowned for excellence in cool climate viticulture. We source this fruit to make a more approachable style of Shiraz at a price point which is different from our own Dry Grown Shiraz. Try it with our Moroccan Lamb recipe.
