Only Available in the United Kingdom

VINTAGE:  2014  | 

Wine Style: Medium bodied
When to Enjoy: Relaxing with good company anytime, anywhere..
How to Serve: Good room temperature of 16 – 18 degrees.
Our meal suggestions: Our favourite combinations include seared tuna served on a bed of baby spinach,  lamb chops braaied to perfection, or sweet & sticky pork ribs. A vegan option is also wild mushroom risotto – simply enjoyable. 
The wine itself: A luscious lifestyle wine with hints of red raspberry fruit and white pepper spice, giving a first impression of red berries and chocolate with slight cedar wood undertones. Soft pliable tannins lend subtle support to the structure, yet are unobtrusive on the succulent palate.
What about the grapes? 85% Shiraz, 13% Grenache, 2% Mouvedré
The vineyards (terroir): The grapes for this blend originate from prime vineyard sites that have been planted with new clone material. Most of the sites face southwest and receive supplementary irrigation resulting in optimal ripeness, superbly concentrated flavours and ripe, supple tannins. A clay sub-soil retains essential moisture and the gravelly, granite derived topsoil allows for effective drainage.
How was it made: We aimed for soft tannins and ripe dark fruits and used Rhone style varieties to achieve this. 4th and 5th fill French 500L barrels were used to mature this wine and to add to the complexity.
Should this wine age / mature: A wine to enjoy now!
