Cleanskins are an Aussie peculiarity that allow top wineries to shift parcels of fine wine with minimal labelling (hence the cleanskin) and us to secure you great deals. Our Buyer Dan always has an ear to the ground for them and used his contacts to secure this handcrafted star.
It combines three top red grape varieties, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, all sourced from prime sites throughout South Australia where the famous red soils – comprising sand, limestone and clay – provide perfect growing conditions.
The winemaker fermented each batch of grapes then carefully blended them prior to maturation for several months in small oak barriques. Ripe, rich and complex, this powerful red is perfect with steak and chips, or roast lamb.
