|VARIETY||Shiraz 65% Cabernet Sauvignon 35%|
Located directly in front of the Wirra Wirra’s century old ironstone cellars, the “Scrubby Rise” vineyards and its marvellous soils enable it to produce some of our best Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon from season to season. In addition to the Scrubby Rise fruit, the wine also includes components from our Finniss River Vineyard, approximately 20 minutes south of the cellars on the Fleurieu Peninsula and, a drop or two from the Adelaide Hills.
Quite rare in its varietal composition, the final blend of Shiraz, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon has been chosen to produce a wine that displays balance, elegance, complexity and structure.
Colour Deep plum with a bright crimson edge.
Bouquet Bright, ripe raspberry and sweet mulberry fruits, laced with fragrant cabernet leaf and dried herbs.
Palate Juicy red berries, ripe blue and black fruits as well as blood plum richness. The generous fleshy fruits are supported by supple tannins and provide a wine with great flavour, freshness and balance.
