Deep vibrant red in colour with aromas of rich berry fruit including blackberries and mulberries with hints of menthol and cinnamon and some spicy vanillin oak. Rich and juicy with blueberry characters and well-balanced oak.The palate shows good structure with medium tannins and a lingering finish.

87 points…….Fantastic Value. Deakin Estate, in the Mildura region is a consistent source of good quality budget wines such as this shiraz. It has pleasant earthy raspberry and plum aromas with a floral hint. In the mouth, its a light to medium bodied drop with clean berry flavours and a very soft finish. Screw Cap – 13.5% alcohol. Ageing: No. Food Ideas: Lamb Burgers, Moussaka.
