Grape Variety: Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon
Nurture: Maturation for 12 months in a combination of 2 and 3 year old seasoned French and American oak enhanced the subtle complexity without ensure dominating the fruit
Tasting Notes: Plum and rhubarb aromas with cassis, some savoury spice and mouth-watering hints of fennel and caraway entice a taste. These characters follow through onto the palate, with the underlying warmth of oak. Fine tannins of Cabernet Sauvignon provide backbone and structure while fleshy Shiraz enriches the body. Both varieties combine with elegance and savoury length. Tight and youthful when bottled, the wine will evolve over time and reward with more complex flavours.
Serving Suggestion: Plum and rosemary lamb shanks served with herbed couscous and steamed green beans. A good splash of Woodstock Shiraz Cabernet in the sauce while cooking makes this match perfect!
