Product Description

THE WINE
A bold, charismatic blend of Grenache, Shiraz, and Mataro
loaded with raspberry, blackberry, spice, and a supple finish.
Grenache brings ripe, jammy fruit flavours and hints of
cinnamon spice. Shiraz provides a punch of blackberry,
and plum flavours with elements of black pepper spice, while
Mataro brings savoury, earthy notes, spicy elements and texture.
THE REGION
South Australia’s picturesque Riverland region boasts over
300kms of the River Murray running through it, and wildlife
is plentiful in the area. Kookaburras, native to Australia, are
abundant here and their ‘laughing’ call is a common chorus
along vineyards and riverbanks. With the hot, dry continental
climate and minimal rainfall, the river provides much-needed
water to the area’s vineyards. The Riverland’s flat terrain and
long hours of sunshine mean the vines here receive consistent,
quality sunlight, greatly reducing their chance of disease and
ensuring fully ripe, flavourful grapes.
THE FOOD
Drink alongside braised meats, grilled lamb with rosemary,
meaty pasta dishes, and mushroom stews. Try with earthy
dishes like spicy, hearty stews with red meat and root vegetables,
mushroom risotto, or eggplant lasagna.
