Grape VarietyCabernet Shiraz
Red - big, bold, full-bodied
Cohesion, vigour, sheen, poise – four borders of a frame that structurally binds the lofty palate ambitions of this South Australian blend. Fresh and balanced. Neither exaggerated nor over-ripe – lively blueberry and other youthful blue/black fruits bely the maturation timeline of this alluring blend. Certainly befitting this style, unmistakable barrel-ferment characters are undoubtedly more pronounced on palate than nose. If the mid-palate is somewhat formidable (ably supporting a thick/dense core), by contrast the back-palate is creamy and caressingly endearing. Indeed, expansive and full – washing away all ahead of it. Certainly persistent. Texturally, chewy/grainy tannins and just-right acidity abet succulence and mouthfeel. Effortlessly handles 19 months in 100% new oak. All CV mandates of this 2019 Grange vintage are now accredited.
Grilled or slow cooked red meats, rich pasta dishes, Sweet & sour ribs. Seared Wagyu Beef with Dijon mustard. Braised oxtail, Venison loin with juniper jus.
