Corrina’s Cabernet Shiraz Blend

Premium Wines  |  2005 Corrina's Cabernet Shiraz Blend

TORBwine, 2007 SA Tour Diaries

..a quirky winemaking venture where the two varieties are picked at the same time if the vintage permits, the shiraz co-fermented over cabernet skins, resulting in a wonderfully vibrant expression of this style, strangely old school but full of superb fruit and fun drinking . ..the silky, drying tannins provide a good mouth feel and firmly back this ample-weight wine that has a diverse complexity
