A curious blend of French style and Piedmont grape varities stemming from the Italian and French roots of the Cassegrain lineage. Red cherries, red currant and rose petal with vanilla notes. Medium bodied wine with fine tannins and oak playing a supportive role.
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.
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.
