Description

How Ken sees himself: The Man, The Myth, The Legend. How everyone else sees him: The opposite. Dubbed "uncle" as no family is complete without an embarrassing member (please don't ask him to "sing"!)

Just like the above, this wine is also a perfectly split blend: 50% Shiraz and 50% Durif. Aromas of blueberries, black plum and boysenberries, with notes of liquorice and violet. The Shiraz fruit is bright and spicy, while the Durif is bursting with tannin and rich flavours. Long length and full palate. Pair with rib eye, roast beef, stews, or goat's cheese.

Drink now or cellar for 10-15 years.
