Product Description

Cross Stitch Shiraz Cabernet

Vintage: Current Vintage (enquires welcome)

Region: 53% McLaren Vale Shiraz, 47% Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

Vineyard and Wine Making: The Australian wine industry history, and much of its success, is founded on our winemakers’ uncanny ability to blend across a virtual patchwork quilt of multiple varieties and regions to create wines where the sum of the parts is greater than any of the individual components alone. Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon blends are recognised as the best examples of this craft. Cross Stitch, a judicious blend of McLaren Vale Shiraz and Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon, is one such wine. The McLaren Vale Shiraz is sourced from a diverse range of vineyards in the region - from Sellicks in the south to Blewitt Springs in the North providing a wine with a delightful array of fl avours and texture. Our Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from vineyards to the north of Penola planted in a mixture of Terra Rosa soil over limestone and black cracking clay. Both wines are crafted separately using the best of old and new world techniques to extract maximum fl avour from the grapes. Blending of the various parcels prior to bottling took us 3 weeks on three separate occasions to ensure we had the balance “just right” between the two regions and varieties.

Tasting Notes: This wine is defi nitely more than the sum of its parts. Rich, ripe plum and spice from the Shiraz are perfectly interwoven with the blackcurrant and chocolate characters of the Cabernet Sauvignon. Maturation in small casks has imparted subtle oak undertones and allowed the wine tannins to mellow providing a soft luscious wine. Enjoy this wine now with your favourite red meat dish or cellar carefully to allow the rich tapestry of fl avours to further develop.

Alcohol: 14.5%
