Corrina’s Cabernet Shiraz Blend

Premium Wines  |  2003 Corrina's Cabernet Shiraz Blend

Fergus McGhie, Canberra Times, June 2006

On a winters evening last week, I tried the Corrina's Cabernet Shiraz and, despite my best efforts at restraint, I finished the whole bottle. A supple, rich compote of berry flavours flood the mouth, while Canernet's dusty dry tannins balance the power of the Shiraz just so. I could drink this all winter. It has great cellaring potential, but I'd fail to resist temptation
