About This Wine
A ripe, full bodied wine which has benefited from 15 months oak maturation. It shows an aroma reminiscent of plums and chocolate with a touch of earthy complexity. The palate is rich and full of black-fruits and has a long soft finish. A wine which could partner a cheese plate equally as well as a rare fillet steak. It is drinking well now but will age gracefully for the remainder of the decade.
"Langhorne Creek has a big reputation for quality cabernet and family varieties and blends, but don't bypass the shiraz, which has its own cred due to Lake Alexandrina air-cooling the region. The reds are full bodied yet with a better trim than many warmer districts. Here's a good example - dark fruits, a hint of regional mint and chocolate, mouthfilling with a velvety feel and finish. Most satisfying. Try too the cabernet merlot from the same range."
