What do you get when you combine a couple of ex, high-flying LVMH marketing/sales legends, an ex-Wallaby’s captain and winemaker Ben Riggs. Dunno, but it sounds like there’s a lot of nice tailoring involved. You also get this fresh off the winery floor wine project.
Warm, rich, inviting shiraz. Spice-laden, lavish with gummy, jellied berry fruit characters, a dash of splintery, cedary oak, smooth, as can be through its length, with the finish a touch lemony fresh. It’s a glossy, polished red that fits that Friday night, no thinking, like shiraz drinking slot. Good with a bag of [insert favourite thick cut chip] and [insert sport or blockbuster movie].
