Natalie's Score: 90/100

Juicy, generous layers of blackberry fruit mingles with some violets on the nose. This wine was aged in 65% French oak and 35% American oak, 33% of which was new. With more French oak, we get the vanilla-spice flavours rather than the creamy, cocnut, caramel aromas that come from American oak. Although it says Shiraz on the label, the winery will be changing this to Syrah, the French name for the same grape because the style of the wine is more restrained and Old World. Perfect for pizza night or any other night! Syrah food pairings: spicy sausages cooked on the BBQ, meat lasagna, or rib eye steak.

This wine will be available on the general list in October.
Purplish ruby-red in colour, with a seductive
nose that offers black fruit such as blueberries and blackberries along with a subtle floral touch that recalls lavender, all framed by sweet spices such as cloves and nutmeg from the oak. A light balsamic touch increases complexity. Fine tannins lend a velvety mouthfeel, while fresh acidity adds a fruity firmness. The flavours confirm that this is a nicely ripe and tremendously friendly wine that will continue to gain complexity over time, while its bright acidity predicts excellent longevity in the bottle.
