This Langhorne Creek red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Dark and smoothed on the palate, with layers of cedar, pipe tobacco, black cherry, cracked clove and cinnamon. Tannins are softened, but carry an edge that cuts the ripeness. Bottled without filtration, this is a solid red for skirt steak or sausages.
Dense purple in colour with a smoky, cedary nose of blackberries with herbal notes; full-bodied, dry, juicy blackberry flavour with lively acidity and a firm finish.
Dense purple-black in colour showing a bouquet of sandalwood and blackberries; full-bodied with concentrated flavours of black plum with creamy oak and tannins that give the wine structure.
Dense purple in colour with a spicy, cigar-box and blackberry nose with a note of tar; medium to full-bodied, dry with blackcurrant and plum flavours with lively acidity and a firm tannic finish.
I didn’t know that there was a strain of owls that barked so I checked it on the ‘net – and there is! This Shiraz is opaque purple in colour with a savoury bouquet of blackberries with a note of iodine. Medium to full-bodied, it’s dry, firmly structured with the flavour of ripe black plums carried on lively acidity. Ideal for barbequed meats and ribs.
Dark ruby. Intense red and black fruits and a good deal of oak point to a loaded wine. Indeed it is, but there is a surprising freshness to the palate thanks to the biting acidity. Intense mid-palate with powdery tannins. Generous in every way, but not really harmonious.
Full ruby. Somewhat shy nose of ripe red berries, a little oak. The palate follows with a ripe fruity taste, the acidity slightly tingles the tongue, but it is overall quite fleshy and not without freshness, thanks to an edge of eucalyptus in the finish. Drink up this blend of Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot.
