2014 Joanna Shiraz
// NEW VINTAGE // Hints of dark chocolate and vanilla aromas greet you in the glass. This develops into blackberry and mulberry fruits, with hints of spice and white pepper. The palate is full and luscious with good palate weight and a nice dusting of oak. The smooth but present tannin completes this wine with power and prestige. Will complex and age well over the next 10-15years. ( Joanna was first released with the 2012 and was an instant customer favourite.

// NEW VINTAGE RELEASE // This wine was matured in a combination of new American & second use French oak for 24 months. This give the wine structure, complexity and a lift of chocolate oak flavour. The balance is complemented with the rich mulberry fruit & touch of white pepper spice. The finish is smooth and lingering, and best matched to any lamb dish. Cellaring will soften and complex further over the next 5-10 years.View Tasting Note
Soft, elegant and approachable. " This Shiraz Cabernet was fermented and matured separately, giving me the chance to make final blending decisions just prior to bottling. I use the Shiraz portion to build mouthfeel and fruit and the Cabernet to give length and structure. When combined perfectly, it creates a wonderfully round, complete wine that has all the hallmarks of a classic Australian Red. " Luke Tocaciu - WinemakerView Tasting Note
