Commanding attention in every aspect, this cool climate beauty has quite a story to tell, pioneered in Australia by the Cassegrains; it has been 10 years since we released our last Chambourcin and now after much anticipation here it is.
A rose should be evocative and complex but most of all it should possess structure and a dichotomy of fruit and savoury appeal. These wines pair magnificently with savoury foods and occasion is enhanced by their presence.
Our Shiraz is mid-weight in structure yet concentrated in flavour. Dark plum and earthiness is the harll mark of the wines aromas. Full bodied with great length, but retaining an elegance on the finish.
The colour is ruby with aromas of cherry compote punctuated with a varietal tomato bush herbaceousness . The palate is ripe and rich again showing stewed red fruits finishing with a delicate rhubarb freshness.
The palate is reminiscent of its Old World roots which enjoy pairing with herbal overtones. Blueberry and liquorice aromas. Full bodied palate with ripe plums, black tea, cacao nib and rounded tannins.
Once upon a time in Australian Viticulture,Pinot Noir and Shiraz were liberally blended. The wines were wonderful and paired perfectly with our local cuisine. Today, thankfully this beautiful style has earnt it's stage once again.
