2015 West Cape Howe Cape to Cape Shiraz

Cracka Value Rating

Cracka Review

Only West Cape Howe have the know Howe to create wines of real distinction from the Great Southern region in W.A and Margaret River. Here we have a blend of Great Southern (55%) and Margaret River (45%), the cool climate expressed by lifted aromatics of ripe raspberry and pepper all of which appear on the palate before a long finish of dusty tannins. A perfect drink to enjoy with a selection of matured cheeses.

Winemaker's Notes

Colour: A deep dark crimson red with purple hues

Aroma: Dense, dark plum fruit aromas with sweet blackberries and a light spiciness

Palate: Beautifully weighted with the lovely rich and spicy berry fruit flavours balanced by the gently drying tannins. The ripe and juicy dark fruit flavours are enhanced by the light, complexing oak characters picked up during maturation. A really delicious Shiraz that can be enjoyed right now and over the next few years

Cellar Potential: Beautiful drinking now and over the next 6 years or so
