Cellar: Drink now - 3 Years (2010-2013)
ABV: 14%
Closure: Screw Cap

The blend is comprised of 87% Shiraz, 7% Malbec and 6% Cabernet with maturation taking place in 2 and 3 year old American hogsheads for 6-9 months.

This remarkable value is set to replace Water Wheel's Shiraz as one of the best barbeque quaffng reds on the market.
Opaque black dark red colour with deep dark red hue. The nose displays good intensity with aromas of blackberry, liquorice, confectionary and spice. Excellent palate weight, with a ripe joosy favour profle of blackberry, liquorice and spice and some blackpepper on the back palate. A very fne grained, soft tannin structure is accompanied by a long aftertaste of blackpepper, liquorice and spice. Soft but full favoured.
While this is clearly made for immediate pleasure it will keep over the next 2-3 years (2010-2013)
