A hulking heavy-hitter with impeccable poise that lip smacks and face slaps its way out of the glass. Wound tighter than a watch-spring, this three-card is both compelling and delicious. As always, a sure bet and sure to please.
Australia has always excelled in creating red blends – merging classic European varieties in un-thought of ways to create unthinkably good new combinations. Cabernet and Shiraz are one such classic collision; Bordeaux meets the Rhone. It’s only Australian to add a slab of Abruzzo too.
