Label Notes:

Cabernet Shiraz is widely regarded as the most Australian of wine styles. This premium wine combines the length and structure of Cabernet Sauvignon with the ripe, juicy fruit and tannin of Shiraz. The aroma is of ripe red and blue fruits with a hint of spice. The palate is long, full bodied and rich. It is crammed with ripe fruit flavours, fine grained tannins and a hint of savoury oak.
