Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Inky dark red, black with purple hue. A generous blackberry aroma and dark cherry fruit characters mingle with undertones of licorice, mocha and cedary oak. The oak maturation has enhanced the spice and mocha characters of the wine while some open fermentation has helped enrich the fruitfulness and general complexity. This full bodied shiraz will complement any red meat dish or white meat with rich sauce.

Wine EnthusiastMade in a superripe, dense, almost fudge-like style, The Ripper tastes like a plummy, chocolaty Christmas cake with slightly coarse tannins on the finish. It's Port-like in flavor, but without the heat from elevated alcohol. Drink it over the next few years.
