  • Blend and Origin

    Shiraz (95%) and small amounts of grenache (3%) and viognier (2%) were used to craft this wine. Wild yeasts with co-ferment viognier added lift and deep colour, while the grenache enhances juiciness and mid-palate spice notes. Fermentation maceration takes place over 80 days, followed by a further malolactic fermentation in French (80%) and American (20%) oak.


Food pairing:
Enhance the wine's savoury complexity

Main

The savoury complexity of this wine will pair beautifully with smoked aubergine, pepper and courgette lasagna. Try adding feta with a hint of chilli to match the faint spice on the palate. A fine alternative would be grilled veal or venison served with truffle mashed potato.
