Orange River Cellars Lyra Vega 2015

A blend of Shiraz and Petit Verdot, this fresh, yet full bodied wine exudes aromas of black olives and blackcurrants intermingled with soft vanilla tones derived from complex oaking. Spending 19 months in a combination of American, French and Hungarian Oak barrels allowed the wine to evolve, releasing marmalade and blueberry flavours wrapped in velvety tannins making it a truly fruit driven wine for the ultimate wine enthusiast.
