Grape: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Shiraz
Category: Red Wine
Location LCBO Vintages
Format: 750 mL
Producer: Majella Wines
Alcohol: 14.5% Alcohol/Vol.
An Aussy Cab/Shiraz that’s not jammy, priced right & oh yes it’s good
Description: Deep garnet in colour with an intense nose. This wine features cedar, plums, cherry, eucalyptus, white pepper, roasted red peppers, turmeric, fresh cut carnations & Allspice. Medium+ body with medium tannins, good acidity and a long length.
Negatives: Some heat from the 14.5% alcohol on the finish
Interesting Point: Using a Shiraz style wine glass smooths out the tannins versus the larger Cabernet Sauvignon glass
Drink now on its own or in the next 3 years on its own or pair it with Spicy BBQ Leg of Lamb with Rosemary Couscous.
