Grown by the John family at Malakoff Estate, matured for 16 months in French barriques. Its deeper crimson-purple colour and medium to full-bodied palate are in continuing contrast for the two SubRosa Shirazs, but not in the skill of the winemaker. Balance is often said to be the one word to describe a great wine, and this exudes velvety black cherry at every turn. Cedary oak nuances and persistent, pliable tannins complete the picture.
