Corrina’s Cabernet Shiraz Blend

Premium Wines  |  2006 Corrina's Cabernet Shiraz Blend

Matthew Jukes, Oct 2009

Corrina has tamed the wild beast that is the Shiraz Cab combo and in 2006 I am delighted to introduce you to her finest wine to date. The complex nose of oregano, rosemary and thyme overlay a red and black fruit bowl with a stern stave of carpentry underpinning the whole. Drink with flighted game, well hung steaks or slow-roasted goat and you will have found the combination which so many lack.
