Waverley Hills Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2010

Deep purple centre with pink rim describes the youthfulness of the wine. Black cherry and raspberry aromas denotes its fruitiness which is rounded off by subtle aromas of chocolate and spicy notes from the French oak. On the palate the wine has a soft entry with notes of pepper and hints of mocha. A very adaptable wine that can be enjoyed at a light lunch, hearty dinner or simply on its own.

about the harvest: The 2010 season proved to be a wet winter and a relatively cool summer, ideal for perfect ripening of the grapes. Suckering and green harvesting contributed to quality grapes. The dry summer harvest resulted in healthy fruit with few few problems with diseases experienced. Irrigation practices went well and there was sufficient water available. The grapes were left on the vines to fully ripen and handpicked and sorted in the vineyards.
