The Larrikin

Shiraz Cabernet 2021

60% Shiraz | 40% Cabernet

It needs a bit of a larrikin to take two traditionally very separate varieties and just slap them together, but that’s just what pioneering Australian winemakers did – and the combo works exceptionally well. An Australian classic.

Winemaker's Notes

It’s well known that McLaren Vale makes great Shiraz, but less well known is that Vale Cabernet can also excel. With good harvesting decisions you can create a blend with lift and elegance but also with a rich full palate. Something I believe we have achieved with our Larrikin.

Bouquet & Palate

Begins with a frisson of fine French oak and smoky sandalwood before plunging into a full fruit basket; plums, mulberries, blackberries, and blackcurrants. The palate pulses with fruit filled verve. Rosehip, and cocoa notes. Leather, bay, and thyme.

Food Match

Slow roast leg of lamb or rosemary garlic hasselback potatoes, but probably both just to be sure.
