    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2010 Shotfire Quartage has a lifted aroma of blackcurrant, cedar, spice and subtle violets. The palate is medium to full bodied in weight and displays cassis characters. The wine has long silky tannins that are to be expected from wines made in the vain of a Bordeaux blend.

    Blend: 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Cabernet Franc, 12% Malbec, 12% Merlot

    Critical Acclaim:

    Good purple-crimson; as is so often the case, defies commonly accepted views about the Barossa's (ie including the Eden Valley) ability to produce high quality examples of a Bordeaux blend; there is an invigorating freshness and lightness of touch to this berry-fruited wine that draws it through to a long, lingering finish.

    Inky ruby. Pungent aromas of cherry compote, blueberry and licorice, with tobacco and medicinal herb nuances gaining strength with air. Juicy and penetrating, offering intense dark fruit flavors and bright floral and spice qualities. Dusty tannins add grip to a long, spice-dominated finish, which features a subtle vanilla note.
