Shiraz (formerly known as â€˜Hermitageâ€™) is an important part of Coonawarraâ€™s history. The acknowledged reputation of Coonawarra for age-worthy wines has largely centred on Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz blends. However, the very early history (in the 1890s) centred on other varieties â€“ particularly Shiraz.
Displaying great fruit character, this wine has rich and complex flavours of red berries, spice and chocolate with layered fruit underpinned by tightly focusedÂ tannins.
Nose:Â Concentrated notes of dark cherry and blood plums, followed by raspberry, bay leaf and lavender.
Palate:Â Dark and focused, filled with juicy and vibrant fruit. Blood plum and magnolia on the mid-palate. Sleek, plush tannins frame bright fruit, creating a seamless, layered wine, indicative of its cool-climate home.
