Fresh, complex cassis and mint fruit flavours with some well integrated vanillin oak. Full bodied with dense ripe cassis fruit flavours balanced with vanilla oak but yet long and smooth. Selected premium vineyards experienced ideal growing conditions producing wines of high sugar and flavours. Cool nights providing ideal harvesting conditions. The grapes were picked at between 13.5 to 14.0 Baume to produce the fruit flavours that are required to make this great wine. The grapes were fermented in a mixture of vessels to produce as much colour and flavour as possible. Portion of the wine underwent oak during fermentation and once dry, the remaining went to oak until the right balance was achieved. Careful tasting and blending, by our winemaker, help produce this wine of style and great value for money. Try with chargrilled sirloin or a hearty minestrone.
This wine has the flavour, structure and balance to be enjoyed now or offers added satisfaction from further cellaring.

You are greeted by youthful, fresh, ripe berry fruit aromas with notes of vanilla oak as the intense red coloured wine flows from the bottle. Full bodied dense ripe berry flavours with notes of vanillian oak but yet long and smooth. Best served with a red wine casserole or a juicy steak with red onion jam. Can be enjoyed now but would also reap benefits of further cellaring.Grapes: ShirazRegion: Coonawarra / PadthawayLocation: AustraliaAlcohol Content: 14.5%Awards: Double Gold - Finger Lake International Wine Competition 2015Gold - CWSA 2015Gold - International Wine Contest Bucharest 201589 points - James Halliday 2015 Approachable, easy...

We've secured the remaining library stock of this prestigious Reserve Pinot Gris from Matakana Estate. Until now this lovely oaked Pinot Gris has only been available in select export markets and at Auckland Airport Duty Free stores for $42.50 per bottle. The Matakana region is proving to have great potential to produce quality Pinot Gris wines, and Matakana Estate's aim is to nurture the natural earthy stone-fruit character of this grape—along with the influence of our Matakana vineyard’s terroir. Pinot Gris has elegant fruit characters but the flavours are subtle. This ‘vigorous’ variety needs to be pruned heavily to reduce the yield per... Read More
