Corrina’s Cabernet Shiraz Blend

Premium Wines  |  2005 Corrina's Cabernet Shiraz Blend

Ross Noble, Courier Mail, 2008

The blend of old-vine shiraz and cabeniet sauvignon was made by vinification together in open fermenters, an old technique that works very well in the Oliver's Taranga Vineyards Corrina's Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2005. It is a full bodied mix of richly flavored berry fruit,bringing out the juiciness of the shiraz and the complexity of the cabernet component.
