Inky dark in color with nice black berry nose. On the mid palate there’s some nice soft black berries to match the nose, almost blueberries. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice soft tannins, acidity and pepper. This is a softer gentler more food friendly shiraz, likely made so by the cab. I don’t get a lot of cab off it. I would give it an 88 or so. Not in the LCBO but available by the case for $24.50 a bottle.
from the winery’s web site:
A classic Australian wine style championed in Australia in the late 1800s. Today it is the great Australian red, to the point that leading international wine writers and commentators, Tyson Stelzer and Matthew Jukes, have labelled Shiraz Cabernet blends as “The Blend that defines Australia: Mouth filling wine style; soft, fleshy but firm with an explosion of fruit and flavour by blending Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon”.
