Stormflower Cabernet Shiraz 2016

Tasting Notes:

Aromas of plums, black berries, spice and dark chocolate. The palate is generous, soft and approachable with bright fresh flavours that are surprisingly complex as they evolve. This wine has great length of flavour and abundant soft juicy tannins, and is drinking well now.

Wine Guide 2018

A soft and generous full-bodied red blend. This works extremely well in Margaret River. The firm cabernet provides the drive and structure while the spicy and savoury shiraz adds balance and complexity into the palate. Beautiful oak integration helps immeasurably.
