Coonawarra’s 2015 vintage was amongst the earliest on record. An ideal growing season with slightly above average temperatures and dry conditions delivered rich, full bodied Shiraz grapes with deep colour, generous fruit concentration and smooth, fine tannins.
Matured for 14 months in 90% French oak and 10% new American oak barriques which added complexity and suppleness.
Colour: Deep plum with purple hues.
Nose: A complex array of ripe fruit and oak. Vibrant red forest berries with hints of spice and liquorice.
Palate: A richly layered palate of raspberry and hints of liquorice and peppery spice. All intertwined with subtle oak maturation characters and lingering, fine grained tannins.
Food Pairing Notes
Braised red wine and herbs beef ribs, a hearty cassoulet or fresh pasta with shaved truffles.
