2013 Tin Lids
Our second release of the “Tin Lids” Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon is another impressive example of this great Australian blend.
We love this new Hobbs wine made together with Sean, Bridget and Jessica Hobbs, our 'kids' or Tin Lids as they were often called. Their youthful influence on this traditional Aussie blend has resulted in a vibrant wine with the fresh herbal flavours of Cabernet merging seamlessly with the rich dark red and black berry flavours of Shiraz.
On the nose you’ll find licorice and blackberry essence, spicy notes of pepper and sage with a hint of freshly picked mint, meaty and savoury aromas and subtle notes of cedar.
The palate is full bodied with dark red and black berry flavours and the lovely herbaceous characteristics of Cabernet Sauvignon The wine has a fresh acidity, very fine grain tannins and a long perfumed finish.
50% Shiraz 50% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Shiraz is matured for 24 months in second use French oak Hogsheads and the Cabertnet matured in new French oak for 24months. Bottled unfiltered. 250 dozen made.
