This is a cheap and cheerful Shiraz with lots of brightness and bounce, by South Aussie Shiraz standards anyway. It exudes ripe blueberries, grape jelly, crushed violets and a little white-pepper spice. The fruit is less overt on the palate, where the silky, medium- to full-bodied mouthfeel is supported by savory tannins. A dry, oaky note flares up on the finish.

Tangy wild blackberry and blueberry flavors sing out, followed by bay leaf notes and a peppery spiciness. Smooth tannins. Drink now through 2028. 50,000 cases made, 4,000 cases imported.
