A quintessential Aussie Shiraz that’s easy drinking with soft, supple tannins and a core of jammy dark fruits; plum, blackberry and fig. Blended with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon, this adds another layer of softness, with subtle minty notes and a cassis-edged sweetness. Pair with grilled meats, rich dishes or on its own.
Patterson’s sources its wines from a co-operative of independent producers whose wines are made separately in designated single-vineyard batches. Blending from the same palette of parcels in each vintage gives the winemakers control over the quality of the blends, as well as assuring consistency from year to year. A particularly old vineyard block, planted in the late 1960s, is the secret behind this blend’s style and success.
