A wonderful rich, juicy Shiraz with layers of dark fruit flavours with some captivating notes of vanilla. This is a benchmark South Australian Shiraz from a great vintage. This wine will cellar for a further 3- 5 years.

What food to match it with        

Most food dishes due to its great fruit concentration. Perfect for Eamonn's (Hit Two) Kilkenny Lavistown Sausages with Cannellini Beans due to its full body and fruity finish.
