P A L A T E
On the palate this full- bodied wine is an opulent mix of dark red fruits, mixed berries, and chocolate with a surprising savoury spice. Super fine tannins and a lively hint of floral notes on the finish

The Shiraz and Viognier were handpicked from the Hobbs Estate vineyard at optimal sugar, tannin and acid ripeness. The grapes were co-fermented in small batches, hand plunged and monitored closely to ensure perfect balance and integration. Once fermentation was finished, the wine was pressed off the skins into new French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and maturation.

"An inky red to purple, floral lift meets meaty savoury nuance and concentration of plush black fruits work amongst generous embellishments of spice.
The wine has such depth and concentration but the balance of acid and oak gives flow and texture and is in no way cloying.
Supple, dense plum is layered with spice and milk chocolate like richness whilst still maintaining a subtle savoury disposition. Drink 2022 - 2035."
