"...A knockout at this price."

Aromas of red earth, ground black spice and dark berries. The palate presents fine, silky tannins, juicy fruit flavours of blueberry and dark cherry with undertones of spice.

NB: Please allow 3 days for dispatch


  • The vintage: Moderate Summer months allowed for a gentle ripening and juicy Shiraz berries as a result. Berries and bunches were small, resulting in a wine of intense colour and flavour.

    The winemaking: The fruit was selected and hand-picked from sites across Frankland River. Cold maceration for four days proceeded by a long, cool fermentation. The wine spent six months in new and one-year-old oak prior to bottling.

    The wine: A fragrant wine, deep and inky in colour with a perfume of violets and dried flowers. Ripe black cherry and blackberry fruits accented with black pepper. The finely textured tannins allow this medium-bodied wine to carry the juicy, sweet black fruit across the palate.

    REGION: Frankland River, WA

    ALCOHOL: 14.0%

    "A plume of exotic spices is threaded through the fragrant bouquet of plum and blackberry fruit, and the vibrant palate follows the lead with enthusiastic support. The texture and structure of the mouthfeel add a further dimension to a very, very smart wine. A knockout at this price."
