SMV

Made from three grapes this wine is an Estate wine, with all the grapes sourced from the Estate. The nose is predominantly led by typical Shiraz flavours of redcurrants, white pepper and cloves. Behind these strong aromas you will find rose petals which gently lifts the wine. The palate is soft and chewy with a firm clean fruit finish.
