Paternus Cabernet Shiraz
This wine exhibits a beautifully deep crimson colour alongside plentiful aromas of blackcurrant, raspberry, and mulberry on the nose. The palate is bursting with ripe dark fruit such as plum and juicy blackberry, which are complemented by pepper spice and touches of cinnamon. The intense rich fruit flavours and elegant integrated oak provide a well-structured wine, with layers of silky tannins and persistent length to finish.

"Gorgeously ripe and opulent, the wine shows dark fruit richness, cake spice, toasty oak and vanilla characters, leading to a sumptuous palate offering richly textured mouthfeel and finely infused tannins. Wonderfully composed and structured, finishing impressively long and satisfying. At its best: now to 2037."
