Beacon Shiraz Cabernet
Beacon SHIRAZ CABERNET
Varietal expression of both Shiraz and Cabernet are perfectly balanced in this blend. The wine is deep red in colour with aromas and flavours of blackberry and plum. There are hints of oak and spice that compliment the fruit flavours finishing long and smooth.
Considered something of an ‘Australian Blend’, Shiraz Cabernet has won the hearts of many red wine drinkers over the years with its generous full fruit flavour. 2013 was a great vintage with perfect ripening conditions for Shiraz and Cabernet. Both varieties were harvested in late February at Bē: 13.5˚ & Bē: 13.0˚.
Harvested at ideal ripeness the grapes were crushed and fermented on skins for 7 days with regular pump overs to extract colour and flavour. After pressing the wine was aged in selected French oak before blending and bottling.
Great with pasta, lamb and beef dishes.
