Sangiovese Shiraz 2008: $30
Shiraz 2009: $30
The 2009 Shiraz, is a wine that is exceptional. This year at Granitevale produced wonderful fruit primarily because of the long dry season and our ability to control water to the vines. Again exclusively hand picked the result is a spectacular estate wine exhibiting a full body with sumptuous fruit on the palet, yet displaying all the finesse of cool climate reds. This intense yet delicately balanced Shiraz has resulted in a wine that is rich in berry flavours, fine tannins and a long finish. Imbibe now in moderation, or benefit from good cellaring up to ten years.
Cabernet Sauvignon 2009: $30
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon has benefited from another excellent season where the fruit was able to develop over a long consistent period. The resulting wine displays intense yet balanced characteristics, producing a full bodied wine while showing a delightful currant, cherry and cedar nose. Pronounced ripeness, soft tannins and a nice touch of acidity result in a great palate. Imbibe now in moderation, or cellar well for up to ten years.
