The Pyrenees region of Western Victoria is well known for producing red wines with great colour, body and richness.

Region: Pyrenees Victoria

Winemaking

Made in equal portions from grapes grown on our Glenkara Estate Vineyard. Situated at the foothills of the Pyrenees Ranges in Western Victoria. Matured in a combination of French and American barriques, for 15 months. The shiraz adds the richness of chocolate and ripe plums, the cabernet provides structure and length while the merlot adds the softness and generosity of berry characters. A perfect partner with spicy cuisines, pasta and meat dishes.

Tasting comments:

Medium-deep red with some garnet hints. Dark berry aromas, with plum and prune notes. Oak is kept to the background. Very ripe, rich palate flavours with a touch of licorice and berry conserve. Full, generous and smooth in the modern idiom. This wine is well suited to grilled meat and other savoury dishes.
