2014 Lighthouse Shiraz Cabernet

A full throttle effusion of spicy tobacco-leaf and decadently rich black fruit elbows alongside the classic flavours of cassis in this unctuous Shiraz Cabernet. Black tea tannins carry across the big-boned structure which is fully supported with a core of black cherry and edged with hints of dark chocolate. A brash, yet supple style that is not for the faint-hearted and not to be missed!

2014 Arakoon Sellicks Beach Shiraz

Arakoon’s Sellicks Beach hits all the pleasure buttons for fine McLaren Vale Shiraz. Aromatically giving of perfumed, spicy plum and a headier touch of bourbon-barrel, the fleshy fruit follows with a broad array of blackberry and black cherry flavours. The texture is almost creamy, while the fruit intensity not unlike that of a bright sorbet. A fine balance of both American and French oak lends a smoky depth and additional lick of spice to this utterly enjoyable wine.
