A story that has intrigued us for years is the fable of the legendary founders of Ancient Rome, Romulus and Remus. These twins were abandoned at birth and reared by a she-wolf. Romulus murdered his twin in a fit of rage over the naming of Rome, the city which both had built. Legend presents Romulus as the stronger, more powerful of the brothers, while Remus was more refined, focussed and elegant. We believe the twins’ characterise the distinctive and unique flavours and attributes of Shiraz from the twin valleys - the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley.

Blend:   100% Cabernet Sauvignon


Yield:   1.5 t/acre 


pH:   3.6


TA:   6.1 g/l


Alcohol:   14.5%


Maturation:  

New and seasoned French oak Hogsheads


Cellaring:   Optimum year 2025


Tasting Notes:
Vibrant red-ruby in colour, with redcurrants and blueberries upfront on the nose. These berry fruits are underlined by subtle hints of white pepper, freshly turned earth and dark chocolate. The palate displays more brooding characters with blackberries and cedar, surrounding a dense core of graphite, tea leaf and tobacco. The palate provides plenty of intensity, and a savoury character with chalky tannins giving structure. All of this is carried seamlessly by a fine acid drive.
