The fruit for this Australian inspired blend was sourced from the same vineyard in Osoyoos. Picked 12 days apart and fermented and aged separately before blending; the blending of the two results in fruit characters of ripe cherry and, hints of strawberry and eucalyptus. The palate is full of ripe cherry flavors with notes of cassis and plum. The 18 months in 30% new French oak gives the wine structure and balance.
Pair with beef or vegan mushroom wellington, leg of lamb, Smoked Brisket, Spaghetti Bolognese, Korean BBQ and cheeses like guyere, aged smoked goulda, camembert and aged cheddar.
