2009 No.6 Shiraz Cabernet
Deep, dark red in colour this wine shows blackcurrants with mint and spice on the nose.
Typical Langhorne Creek characters of eucalyptus and mint mingle with a hint of dried oregano.
This is a structural and savory wine. Dark fruits and spice are matched with fine tannins that build in intensity across the palate providing a long finish.
