Three Word Taste Summary: spice, dark chocolate, blackberry

Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from Woodstock Estate and from neighboring vineyards in McLaren Vale were very carefully selected for this wine. Being a wetter than normal vintage, every vine was carefully checked before harvest to ensure berries were in good condition.

Maturation for 12 months in a combination of 2 and 3 year old seasoned French and American oak enhanced the subtle complexity without dominating the fruit.
