This red grape blend wine is another double fermented in style. I took the selected pressings of Shiraz and Petit Verdot from 2013. The grapes were aged in oak for a year and re-fermented them with fresh 2014 Shiraz.
After a 3 week maceration period and after pressing, the wine was aged again in older oak for 6 months on lees. It was then blended with 17% Cabernet Sauvignon.
This wine was made with rich fruit flavours, floral aromatics and easy-drinking in mind.
Curious about what Huon Hooke thinks about this wine? Read his review (he thought it was pretty tasty).

No. 2 Red Grape Blend Wine Tasting Note
Double fermenting 2 successive vintages and employing semi-carbonic maceration techniques delivers a wine of spice, expansive floral and ripe berry fruit aromatics that range in variation. Notes of blueberry, raspberry, white flowers and floral nectar cascade in a wash over your palate, ending with a signature Asian spice and ripe olive oil character from the stem that supports the delicate fruit structure.
