This crimson and red plum shiraz reflects the up and coming shiraz vineyards of the Barossa Valley.
The aroma is full with dark plum, blackberries, cassis and dark cherry, along with a lift of spice and star anise.
The palate is medium to full bodied with a soft tannins and textural mouthfeel. The taste of red cherry, raspberry coulis and blueberry conserve gives this wine a great posture.
There is a complexity and texture which is rarely found at this price.
Drink now or cellar for up to 10 years.
“You’d imagine a Scottish woodcutter might like a fortifying red at the end of the day – something rich, warming, full bodied and affordable” Torbreck Winemakers.
