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 is a winner.
|Winemaker's Notes||Australia has always excelled in creating red blends – merging classic European varieties in un-thought of ways to create unthinkably good new combinations. Cabernet and Shiraz are one such classic collision; Bordeaux meets the Rhone. It’s only Australian to add a slab of Abruzzo too.|
|Bouquet||Dramatic lift of char, iron, iodine, and pure plums; all this with utter aplomb. Smouldering French oak, soft black liquorice and treacle. Muscular, taut, and textured.|
|Palate||A hulking heavy-hitter with impeccable poise that lip smacks and face slaps its way out of the glass. Wound tighter than a watch-spring, this three-card is both compelling and delicious. As always, a sure bet and sure to please.|
|Food Match||Smoky BBQ – ribs, brisket, shoulder, ‘shrooms or aubergines.|
