This fresh and vibrant Shiraz is a great expression of modern Australian winemaking. Flavours of cherries, blackcurrants, coffee and liquorice abound in the smooth, delicious delight.
Aromatically rich and complex, with notes of coffee, cocoa and cola against a backdrop of mulberry and plum fruit. Immense and mouth-coating, with lashings of soft, rounded tannins.
Intense and complex on the nose, with an array of fruit accented by notes of chestnuts, burnt toffee, chocolate and lavender. Full and lush on the palate, with a supple texture and good length.
Chenin Blanc has found a home in South Africa and this example shows exactly why with bright flavours of tropical fruit and apple followed by a honeyed yet refreshing finish.
A nose of cherry-like fruit and subtle floral hints and a dry, harmonious palate combining lipsmacking acidity and fine tannins. At its best enjoyed with platter of mixed antipast or goose.
This has a deliciously intense palate of blackcurrant and wild bramble fruit is lifted with charming hints of thyme and sweet spice. This makes an outstanding partner for rich red meat dishes.
A rich, well balanced example of the Aussie classic. Lush black fruits coupled with touches of woodspice, liquorice and cassis follow through to a rich velvety finish.
