Scarpantoni School Block Shiraz
The perennial Scarpantoni favourite shows plenty of the characteristics that have made it a classic. The current blend is 60% Shiraz, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot, which is typical of most previous releases. The Shiraz and Cabernet contribute toward much of ripe black-fruits, plums and chocolate that dominate the nose and palate and the wine is quite full in body from the Shiraz in particular, but soft, generous and always approachable, which where the Merlot component really comes into its own.
The Atkins Farm Langhorne Creek Shiraz
This hand-crafted Shiraz from the deep fertile soils of Langhorne Creek has loads of plush dark fruits a such as black cherries and plums. The light and fine tannins are complimented by the chocolate tones and supple oak flavours.
