This careful exercise in harmony is a grand showcase of marrying 80% Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon with Eden Valley Shiraz, bringing together different varieties from significantly different regions to achieve a seamless weave of complementary flavours and textures. It’s a bold vision smartly realised – the leafy lift, redcurrant bite and confident blackberry typical of Coonawarra Cabernet threaded with the plush red and blue fruited exuberance of Eden Shiraz. A lively fresh berry perfume leaps from the glass, but the great highlight of this blend is the comforting savoury notes that envelop the mid-palate and keep descending through its densely layered structure. Importantly, the bottled wine sits in cellar for 23 months before release, resulting in ideal balance, with fine-grained tannins underpinning the heft of rich, persistent fruits. ... More details

Region: Limestone Coast

Of all the wine regions of Australia, perhaps the most well known and highly regarded is the Limestone Coast, situated in the south-eastern part of the country, close to the border of Victoria. Here, the exceptional climatic conditions produce grapes of stunning ripeness and flavor, and result in wines which are perfectly grown for expressing the finer features of their mineral rich terroir. Warm sunshine meets cooling oceanic breezes to slowly ripen the grapes, and vintners have long had great successes with a wide range of varietals on the Limestone Coast. From superb Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz wines, to delicate and flavorful Viognier and Chardonnay wines, this region provides up to a third of Australia's wine, and is finding new fans each year.

Country: Australia

Whilst every Australian state has some level of wine production, it is in South Australia and on the island of Tasmania where the finest wines are made to the highest quantities. Here, the scorching Australian sun is a little tamer, and the heat is tempered by brisk oceanic winds, making the climate of these regions ideal for vineyard cultivation. The Tamar Valley on Tasmania has been making waves internationally in recent years, as both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grape varietals are thriving there and resulting in hugely flavorful wines, which are at once distinctly Australian, yet remain unique and interesting enough to surprise and impress. Elsewhere in the country, the Syrah grape (known locally as Shiraz) reigns supreme, as the long, hot summers allow these grapes to ripen fully and lend their intensely fruit-forward character to the ruby red Australian wines, which have such international appeal.
