Colour Dark Red
Nose The Cabernet smells rich and powerful, while the Malbec brings some lifted aromatics and spices- smells downright delicious.
Palate "Full bodied, thick and tannic, black olive savouries mixing with deep fruit, a sort of ‘ironstone’ feeling, you might say, and a firm long finish, replete with tannin and grip." - Gary Walsh
Food Pairing Roasted and grilled red meats.
Cellaring 5-10 Years

Clare Valley
Situated in the Mid North of South Australia, approximately 120 km north of Adelaide is one of Australia's oldest wine regions the Clare Valley. The area is broken up into three sub-regions, the Polish Hill River region to the east, the Central Clare Valley, and the Skillogalee Valley to the west.

Often associated with some of Australia's finest Riesling the cool climate and differing terroirs have paved the way for exciting and diverse wines over a plethora of varietals resulting in wines of pure expression and great length. Home to some of Australia's most iconic wineries - cult producers like Wendouree, to Australian icons such as Kilikanoon and boutique producers like Atlas, the Clare Valley is definitely an area to keep an eye on for exciting and ever evolving wines.

It’s a very blue and purple tasting wine, throbbing with dark fruit, dark chocolate with a little mint, tobacco, dried rose and subtle cedar oak. Full bodied, thick and tannic, black olive savouries mixing with deep fruit, a sort of ‘ironstone’ feeling, you might say, and a firm long finish, replete with tannin and grip. Lovely to see wines being made with an eye to uncompromising structure. The Clare Valley does this blend so well, and this is no exception.
