Natalie's Score: 90/100

Lots of toasty oak on the nose from generous oaking plus dark roasted black fruit. Full-bodied and smooth with great heft. This packs a punch flavour-wise. Demands hearty meat dishes. This wine was fermented on its skins for seven days, then matured 3 years in oak and another 10 months in bottle. Try it with a juicy steak tonight.

Shiraz food pairings: lamb cutlets, salmon, turkey with traditional trimmings, spicy chorizo sausages, peppercorn steaks, grilled or roasted meats.

Terrific Turkey Wine

Sourced from 40-year-old vines, this wine has unquestionably nailed the formula for success. A perennial customer favourite, this powerfully built Shiraz will offer up rich dark fruit and big ripe tannins. A hefty and unabashed wine. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, undated.
