Solid purple-red colour; reflects the good vintage with its array of red and black fruits, oak and tannins merely the postmen. Compelling value for now or later casual drinking.

Padthaway is a huge vinous fruit bowl providing high-quality grapes to the big players, yet it rarely rates more than a mention on their back labels. This valuepacked red is out to change that.
Winemaker Renae Hirsch blended shiraz with cabernet sauvignon, adding a splash of merlot to create a juicy, warm-hearted red with fruit to the fore and mildmannered tannins in the background. The flavours are of fresh raspberry, red licorice and mocha chocolate perfect with pork and fennel chipolatas.
