Reginald Shiraz Cabernet, JJ Hahn

A classic Australian wine style championed in the late 1800s. Today it is the great Australian red, to the point that leading international wine writers and commentators, Tyson Stelzer and Matthew Jukes, have labelled Shiraz Cabernet blends as “The blend that defines Australia'.

A medium bodied, full-flavoured classic is the promise behind the very deep red colour. Notes of berry fruits with a hint of cedar, and spice fill the glass.
The palate reflects the nose with flavours of cedar, stewed fruit and cassis. Ripe red berry fruits and spice are balanced by well rounded tannins. The wine has a pleasant lingering finish with restrained oak. Great depth of flavour indicative of this exceptional vintage. 60% Shiraz, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon.
