Red Cherries | Liquorice | White Pepper “Lively Red Cherries with spiced plums and Liquorice; Silky soft tannins with dusts of White Pepper; perfumed and pretty with hints of rose petals; these are a few of our favourite things.” – Maria von Trapp (with artistic license)
This jewel (or should we say Julie) was found in the picturesque Adelaide Hills, truly alive. Wine with elegance, finesse and prettiness; let’s say our Fair Lady is as magical as The Sound of Music.

93 Points / Exceptional Tastings.com 11/06/2018 ”Dull dusty garnet color. Aromas and flavors of wax and sesame oil, spiced dark berries, toffee, and mint with a satiny, tangy, fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, captivating, long blueberry tart, citrus marmalade, vanilla custard, and pepper finish with light oak. A richly flavorful, slightly brooding shiraz that delivers great pleasure now and will will reward patience with even more in the future.”
