Premium Wines | 2003 Corrina's Cabernet Shiraz Blend
Tim White, Financial Review, 2007, 92/100
Lots of deep forest berries and briar in this- minerally soy scented. It reminds me (curiously) of Priorat (Spain). Good weight this, and real interesting in the mouth: juicy and succulent, but with building tannin. There's some alcohol warmth, but it's a component, not a feature. Has chew and sparkle.

55% Cabernet 45% Shiraz
100% McLaren Vale, Estate grown
Rich, deep maroon, brick hues.
Cabernet characters of tobacco leaf dominate the nose, with a backbone of stewed plum from the Shiraz.
Consistent with the warmer vintage in 2003, the lifted nose is supported by ripe black fruit characters on the palate. Very soft tannin structure gives a supple mouth feel, an excellent food wine.
