A delicious example of the style that over-delivers on quality and offers great value.
Vibrant, deep ruby in colour. A beautifully fragrant wine with black fruit characters of cherry, sweet plums and blackcurrant on the nose, with notes of chocolate and nutmeg spice.
The Stickleback blend is chosen for optimum flavour and texture, with each variety bringing a unique character to the wine. Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz give the wine a rich savoury character and great structure. Dolcetto lends brightness and lift, and Lagrein contributes spice, tannin and a fresh, crisp acidity to the palate.
Try with char-grilled lamb or a juicy steak. 2009 Vintage Notes: Langhorne Creek & Limestone Coast both experienced a well-paced season with excellent conditions for ripening - a relief after the challenging 2008 vintage. Cabernet Sauvignon performed remarkably well in Langhorne Creek, showing good flavour development and intensity. Overall, the 2009 vintage has been one of low yields but good quality.
