Only the 2nd vintage of this wine after Merlot vines were grafted over to Shiraz, but this is all class. Floral and savoury aromas and packed with dense succulent black fruit, medium-bodied and definitely a touch French in style. Layers of flavour with fine silky tannins and a long finish.
The wine was aged in 2nd and 3rd fill French oak barrels for 13 months.
