Blended to perfection

    • Geoff ‘Joffa’ Thompson’s 100% Langhorne Creek Shiraz Cab Malbec returns and has been blended to perfection. Showing a brightness and brooding complexity this wine displays a lovely elegance and generous mouthfeel - perfect for the cooler months.

    • From the first pour you’ll be mesmerised by deep red purple hues, delightful aromas of plums, blueberries and black olives and beautifully soft, velvety tannins.

    • Geoff has done everything to let the fruit shine: from harvesting in the cool of the night, maturing in American and French oak and then expertly blended to create this beautifully balanced wine.

Ageing advice
Will definitely reward medium term cellaring of 5-10 years under favourable conditions to develop more complexity.

Serving advice
Decanting or pouring through an aerator will definitely benefit this wine.

Local food match
Rosemary salt bush lamb, gently cooked on the Weber charcoal - with a leafy green salad with balsamic dressing and crusty sour dough bread.
