A well structured balanced shiraz which is a step up from the 2007 vintage with its earthy smoky black cherry fruit...

Blackberry, black cherry and spices on the nose. The wine has plenty of ripe fruit and ripe tannins, is medium-bodied, and very well balanced.

Perfect wine when you want to play it safe during a Christmas party with lots of people with different tastes. Was very well received by my guests. I found it pleasant to drink. Nice dry Shiraz. Tried in December 2011.
