One of our most popular Spring release wines since inception. This release is a blend of 40% Merlot and 60% Syrah. The Syrah was sourced from nearby Maple Leaf & Artemisia Vineyards, while the Merlot is from our own Estate. Medium to full body; aromatic, with soft tannins and a touch of pepper. Barrel aged 17 months. Plum, cassis and cherry flavours with a long finish. Pair with lamb, barbeque, pizza, pasta or hamburgers. We recommend further aging to soften tannins and enable the aromas to fully develop.
