More About our 2015 Block 25 Cabernet Shiraz....
The Block 25 Cabernet Shiraz is a unique, limited edition blend that combines the intense flavour of our exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon with the finesse of our famous The Crossing Shiraz from the Turners Crossing vineyard at Serpentine, Central Victoria.
Australian winemakers have made the Cabernet Shiraz blend their own in that the combination of these two grape varieties is rare outside this country, yet the selection of firm, classic tannin structure of cabernet sauvignon with the rich fruit and ripe tannins of shiraz complement each other in a sumptuous and very appealing fashion.
Penfolds, Yalumba and Rockfords are other classic Australian labels that produce outstanding wine using the blend of these two ‘powerhouse’ varieties. Penfolds 1962 Bin 60A Cabernet Shiraz is regarded as the best red wine ever made in Australia!
The Turners Crossing 2015 Block 25 Cabernet Shiraz is yet another superb example of this unique blend. The shiraz adds middle-palate velvety richness and savoury notes to the elegance and length of cabernet, creating a complex but balanced wine with great cellaring potential.
Colour: deep, dark, and black
Aroma: The wine offers a complex array of fruit aromas of blackcurrant and spices.
Palate: Savoury, spice berries with medium-high acidity and mouth-watering taste.
Ageing: Ready to drink now, but will most likely continue to improve for 5-6 years
The vintage: 2015 is considered an outstanding vintage in Victoria. The long, cool summer with no heat spikes gave grapes enough time for balanced ripening, and a dry, warm autumn brought the season to an ideal close.
Food Friends: Cabernet Shiraz is a delightful accompaniment to roasted, braised or grilled, beef, slow-cooked lamb, or moussaka.
