2016 Shiraz/Cabernet

This Shiraz Cabernet blend is from selected parcels of handpicked estate grown fruit. Created by co-fermentation to enhance the integration of both grape varieties. A classic Australian blend combining the length of the cabernet sauvignon characters, cherry and mulberry with the shiraz, plum and blackcurrant on the palate.
