Notes from the producer:

The creation of this limited release cabernet shiraz began in a quest to create something real, different, and aspiringly lofty, together with our trusted partner Dourthe Bordeaux. The French component of this wine was made at two of the Dourthe-owned wineries. Australian components of this wine were made at Penfolds Nuriootpa Winery (South Australia). The French and Australian components were blended and bottled in South Australia.

Colour: Dark and deep; brilliant/bright hue; purple core.

Nose: Liquorice, white pepper, black candy which transition to spiciness, with air. Whilst sitting in glass more Middle Eastern/ African spices slowly arise. Oak remains backstage, detected via a subtle smokiness, and possibly a perceived nuttiness.

Palate: Shiraz coats the Cabernet yet still supporting a classic Cabernet graphite core. Flavours, aromatically itemised above, merge to the palate – with this wine what you smell is certainly what you taste! A lovely texture – whilst velvety, granularity of tannins is still apparent. These tannins (and acidity) act as a conveyance for fruit. An engaging acid liveliness and vivacity. Length and persistence – manifested ever-so-softly, with a mineral stamp on the finish.
