Expensive and delicious expressions of fragrant spice celebrate the dark stylishly elegant Single Vineyard fruit. Dark berry conserve takes central stage on your palate and there are suggestions of a slight citrus note reminiscent of dehydrated blood oranges. There is seemingly endless dark velvety fruit entwined with spice which linger carried by elegant fine tannins.
Aromatically there are bright red berry fruit, especially raspberries and the sweet fragrance of dark red roses and an enticing mix of dried herbs. On the palate bright red berry fruit lead into darker more nuanced berries which finish with persistent dark toasted Eastern spices.
There is a central core of the scent of dense black berry fruits surrounded by hints of chocolate and delicious dark fudge. The palate initially is all about the rich dark black berry fruits and high cocoa chocolate and espresso. These flavours combine evocatively and are encouraged to linger by the fine fruit tannins.
A beautifully perfumed bouquet including freesias and tuber roses entwine with the alluring fragrance of dark ripe cherries with glimpses of exotic anise. The palate is a seamless and perfectly lineal expression of dark rich and expensive fruit with a lasting slightly chocolate finish.
This is a classic Australian blend of two favourite varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The Cabernet is dominant with dark fragrant blackcurrrants and hints of spice and the palate is smooth and rich.
