THE YEAR THAT
We got more than we bargained for!

A rare beast, the Corrinas’ is a co-fermented field blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, only made in years when both varieties reach optimum ripeness at harvest. Bright, leafy Cabernet dominates the nose, and rich mint-choc fills the generous palate. Perfect for a Sunday lamb roast.

WHAT THE WRITERS HAVE TO SAY

James Halliday Companion

A co-fermented field blend only made in years when both varieties reach optimum ripeness, this interesting wine has aromas of dark fruits, chocolate, cedar and a little cigar box. The palate is generous and beautifully balanced and while this is delicious now it will only become even more complex over time.
