THE YEAR THAT
We got more than we bargained for!

A rare beast, the Corrinas’ is a co-fermented field blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, only made in years when both varieties reach optimum ripeness at harvest. Bright, leafy Cabernet dominates the nose, and rich mint-choc fills the generous palate. Perfect for a Sunday lamb roast.
