Vibrant aromas of cherry and dark cocoa are complemented by subtle notes of oak. The palate is bright with concentrated and luscious flavours of cherry, dark berries and hints of bitter dark chocolate. Medium in body but with intense flavours that are framed by moreish, grainy tannins.

2 X Cradle Of Hills Maritime Cabernet Shiraz 2012

“A rich and decadent nose: liquefied blackcurrants, mulberries, sawdust and dried violets come to mind. It has the usual McLaren Vale liquorice bullet aspect - almost perfume like in its intensity. On the palate, a succulent blanket of dark black fruits and rich chocolate tones combine with a nice mocha aftertaste. It finishes long and savoury, with superb acid/tannin balance. A superior drinking experience: indulgent to the nth degree.” Wine Advisor Laurence Ryan

2 X Rod McDonald Wines One Off The Syrah Hunter 2015

A savoury, complex and elegant wine with currant and violet aromas. The palate is littered with earthy flavours, smoke and hints of star anise and clove. Chalky tannins and bright acidity provide drive and length, resulting in a seamless finish.
