In a Three Card Monte, as hard as the mark tries to choose a winning card from three, the dealer always wins. We have turned this on its head by using only winning cards, so that the real trick is not which but how well all three go together. A neat trick where everyone’s a winner.
Australia has always excelled in creating red blends – merging classic European varieties in un-thought of ways to create unthinkably good new combinations. This, not so classic, collision combines fruits of Abruzzo, Portugal, and Bordeaux in a complete Contiki style tour of ‘Euro’ flavour, Aussie style.
Bouquet & Palate
Raspberry plum violets, licorice leather straps, and rose star-anise cola. A contrarian liquid, shifting through ranges of flavours and confounding simple description. All the perfume of a full theatre dressing room – floral, earthy, and gamy. Tannin draws taut around kompot fruit, a muscular mix of texture and bright fruit.
Smoky BBQ – ribs, brisket, shoulder, ‘shrooms or aubergines.
