THE STYLE

The purpose of this wine stylistically is to bring together the synergies of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon from three of the most superior viticultural regions in Australia.  We are combining the mid-palate richness of Shiraz with the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon carefully balancing both fruit and seasoned oak.
