Corrina’s Cabernet Shiraz Blend

Premium Wines  |  2005 Corrina's Cabernet Shiraz Blend

Tony Harper, Brisbane News, December 2007

It is a deliciously chocolatey wine, oozing plump, ripe fruit and a dense structure. It's perhaps a little more old school than the rest of the range in terms of its more hefty alcohol and lush fruitiness, but I guess that's exactly what's called for with such a traditional blend.
