Cheese and full flavoured dishes.
92 Points – ”Crushed and destemmed, matured in French and American oak. It’s bright, balanced, fresh and long”. James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (v18)
“This is an old, but good-school shiraz, coating the mouth with blue and dark fruit flavours, boozy fruit cake spice, mocha and bourbon vanilla tones from an arsenal of American oak. Comforting, if far from prosaic. Like sagging into a comfy chair.” – James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (v16)
