This Shiraz et al red blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Malbec from Deep Woods Estates mid-tier Estate range is a wonderfully soft, subtle yet warming red wine from Margaret River.
Deep crimson in colour with purple hues, the nose is loaded with primary fruit aromas including blueberries, plums and raspberry pastilles. The wine also has an alluring liquorice aroma as well as charming savoury spice notes. The palate exhibits juicy dark plum and sweet red berry flavours, with underlying hints of pepper. Whilst the palate is supported by seasonal French oak, the tannins remain soft, round and very fleshy.
