With layered aromas of fresh red raspberry, blackberry pie and ripe cassis, this deep ruby wine captures the senses with fragrant dried violet, ginger snap, dark cocoa and sweet basil impressions. The palate opens with red cherry, juicy blueberry and red plum fruits that intermingle with hints of cinnamon stick and pie crust. The complex array of flavours lasts through the lingering finish, framed by velvety tannins and echoes of cherry cordial and roasted espresso bean.

How to introduce the most widely-known red grape in the world? Now planted nearly everywhere there are vines, growers the world over know that its distinctive black fruit flavours are a sure sell in export markets. Fairly low maintenance, it flourishes wherever there is warmth and sunlight. The coolest of marginal climates give green, capsicum flavours; in warmer climates the fruit flavours become richer and blacker, with a savoury ‘graphite‘ edge. Despite having been accused of encouraging homogeneity in international wine styles, it undeniably produces some of the greatest red wines in the world.
