Sieger Estate Frederick Old Vines Shiraz Cabernet 2018


The classic Aussie red blend of Shiraz and Cabernet, from what is surely our most traditional and loved region. Toss in a great vintage, what is not to love? The wine enjoyed a maturation period of 18 months in French oak. A very dark maroon hue leading into a mellow nose with deep plummy notes. There is dark chocolate to be found here, and cassis, with dried fruit characters. Soft and broadly structured, a wine of mid-length that is big, plush and rather bold, yet still exhibits balance. The team suggests drinking over the next 2-4 years. Personally, I think they are selling themselves short and I think the wine will drink very well for at least four to eight years.
