    Winemaker's Notes:

    The grapes were hand picked and crushed to our 8 tonne open top stainless steel fermenters. The natural or 'wild' yeasts present on the grape skins were allowed to initiate the sugar fermentation. Cultured winery yeasts were then added to complete this fermentation. The result is a wine with excellent depth of colour, richness and complexity.

    Deep dark red in colour this wine displays aromas which are dense and curranty, yet pure and bright. The nose shows lifted florals, violets and choc mints. The palate is brooding and serious with dark chocolate hazelnuts and warm generosity. The Signature finishes with long fine powdery tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Good bright colour; a fragrant bouquet, with a cascade of red and black fruits coursing through the medium-bodied palate, with notes of chocolate and vanilla on the finish.

    Velvety and beautifully focused to show the depth of ripe currant, blackberry, grilled meat and smoke notes that don't quit on the long, deftly balanced finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Drink now through 2015. 400 cases imported.

    The 2005 Signature is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon and 46% Shiraz aged for 22 months in French, American, and Hungarian oak, 31% new. Purple-colored, it emits an alluring perfume of cedar, leather, spice box, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. On the palate it shows off an elegant personality, incipient complexity, succulent fruit, ripe tannin, and a pure finish. It will continue to unfold for several years and offer prime drinking from 2011 to 2020. (94 non tasting note score more recent).
