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.

An Aussie classic blend sitting right in the pocket from an awesome vintage. Cacao dust, blackberry, mulberry framed by fine yet firm tannins. Bright full bodied fruit full of flavour and offering excellent aging potential.

WHAT THE WRITERS HAVE TO SAY

2021
James Halliday Wine Companion 2021

Made only in the years when both varieties ripen at the same time, thus permitting - indeed encouraging - co-fermentation. It's unashamedly full-bodied, but also has the balance to underwrite a lengthy maturation process

Dark cherry-red colour, brighter red edges. A genuine blend on the nose - cedary, leafy cabernet meets richer shiraz plums. Medium-weight and agile, ripeness is spot on here. Cassis, mocha and crunchy red-berry acidity. It's a well put together blend; fruit quality is excellent.

James Suckling

A very intense nose with blueberries and violets, as well as red plums, licorice and some earthy notes. The palate has bold, succulent, red and dark-fruit flavors, assertive tannins and a silky, bright finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
