Trophy for Champion Shiraz @ New Zealand International Wine Show 2020
Imagine a whole lot of competitive Shiraz's getting into a room and then one is judged the champion! No need to imagine it, its time to taste it.
"Deep, dark, complex and mysterious with a purple crimson hue, an opulent aroma of blackberry, boysenberry, spice, and cedar, and a vibrantly spicy, peppery taste with sumptuous red and black fruits, hints of rose petal, balanced creamy vanillin oak and a long, luscious, seamless finish." NZIWS
"Powerful, youthful, a core of dark red berry fruits and layers of toasty vanilla and clove scented wood aromas. No mistaking a the scents of ground pepper, olive and a touch of bitter chocolate. Juicy, fleshy, fruit centric and dry on the palate. Flavours of dark raspberry and chocolate, black olive and brown sugar, violets and toasty wood flavours. Medium tannins and youthful acid line. Balanced and well made. Ready to enjoy with red meats off the barbeque or smoke salmon with olive tappenade paste. Drink now and through 2026." Rated Excellent & 93/100 Cameron Douglas MS, December 2020
