A shiraz blend with complex flavours which include vanilla, dark fruit and undertones of spice. A great full bodied wine with long lingering fruit on the palate.

Vineyards are carefully monitored by the winemaker who ultimately decides when the grapes will be harvested. These grapes are handled separately in the cellar to preserve their natural quality and uniqueness.
