Another strong wine from the wonderful 2012 vintage and very dear to my heart Aussie blend of Shiraz and its stand up and be counted bosom buddy Cabernet. These two are symbiotic of strength and integrity. They work like Laurel and Hardy together - absolutely enjoyable any occasion.
Now this is a seriously innovative piece of winemaking and really intelligent blending. This wine is immediately placing you in a vice like cuddle of sensory warmth - chocolatey, pruny and lip smackingly smart & hearty in all areas. This is jam packed with booming red & black berries, providing a palate which is soft yet elegantly supple and stoic. The Cabernet is as structurally important to the mix by providing some wonderful grip amongst the mix and adds a backbone to the ripe Shiraz dominant fruit.
I know you can spend $20 -$30 bucks a bottle getting a sophisticated big brand wine blend as good as this with all the bells on the front but settle down and just wrap your lips around this beauty at a fraction of the price. Big juicy burst of flavour upfront but keeps going and builds with every lip smacking sip! Tannin is a backbone but well balanced with luscious sweet fruit and provides for another long satisfying finish and over delivers like a $25.00 Reserve blend should and at this price is gob smacking value.
