Eyes: Deep red with ruby hues
Nose: Vibrant, ripe blackcurrants, blueberries, dark plums, hints of bay, liquorice, subtle spicy, toasty oak
Mouth: Generous, packed of juicy fruits of the forest, cassis, chocolate characters. Fleshy fruits are supported by moreish, supple, and ripe tannins. Balanced, persistent fruit finish with beautiful regional savoury inflections of bay, black olives, liquorice.

"Hard to go past this guy when it comes to vaule-for-money quality drinking. Oodles of ripe blackcurrant and dark, spicy plum character with a trace of bay leaf and lightly toasted oak. The palate is dense and rich with grainy tannin influence that cuts through the dark choccies and ripe black fruit richness. You can have something pretty bold with this if you wish." - Ray Jordan for The West Australian

About Bold Reds

Bold red wines typically have high tannins, opaque ruby colours from high anthocyanin content, and rich fruit flavours. Wines that are bold such as these can be enjoyed on their own or with equally bold-flavoured foods.
