About

When you think of the Mornington Peninsula, chances are you are thinking Burgundian varieties, Shiraz if at all would be an afterthought.

While it rarely is afforded the praise that it perhaps deserves, in this wine we find “… another resounding vote in favour of this regional-variety combination.” according to Campbell Mattinson.

This is the finer side of the Shiraz/Syrah personality. It relies on elegance and spice rather than out-and-out fruit power and bombast.

A wine that Mattinson called “most handsome” in his 93 point review, the potential for the variety in the region is quietly yet confidently stated in this release.

What It Tastes Like

“Here is another resounding vote in favour of this regional-variety combination. It’s firm, well-weighted, comes splashed with both black and white pepper, and while there are twig-like notes it’s the rugged beauty of (black) cherry and ripe plum that sets it confidently on its way. It develops well as it rests in the glass; it’s a most handsome wine, in a cool climate style.” - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
