// 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.

The best fruit from only the best vintages makes the grade for this iconic wine. Bold, complex notes of dark chocolate and concentrated fruit lead to a wonderfully rich, structured palate with impeccable length. A wine that showcases the true essence of aged Coonawarra Cabernet and will reward any wine lover or true connoisseur.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
