When it comes to experimenting, pushing the boundaries and challenging the status quo, this wine does it all. The Wine Brothers affectionately call it the love child; a concoction conceived from the most unlikely and illegitimate marriage of varieties, that comes together to produce an absolute winner. A fabulous wine to challenge that know-it-all wine connoisseur.
FROM THE WINEMAKER
"This blend was born through the creativity of winemaker Steve Grimley, with a post-ferment mix of three red varieties (Durif 51%, Shiraz 27%, Grenache 17%) and one white variety (Sauvignon Blanc 5%).
Visually the wine is very imposing; it appears dark and inky in the glass. The aromatic nose offers blackberry and earthy tones. When sampled the blend presents a full flavoured and complex assault on the palate; the Durif strikes with large, fruity characteristics while the Shiraz adds weight and balanced aromatics. The Grenache flashes a bright element in the mid-palate while the Sauvignon Blanc introduces the slightest hints of passionfruit. The tannic characteristics of the Durif ensure a strong, grounded finish."
Heavy wine. Heavy-er food needed. Can match it with red meat - lamb, steak...etc
