House of the Dragon Cabernet Shiraz 2021

Overview

Overview

A formidable bold blend that brings to life the crimson majesty of a dragon’s fire. Rich in dark fruit with hints of leather and spice, the elegant structure of Cabernet Sauvignon combines with the brooding fruit depth of shiraz in a full-bodied balance of intensity and character. Best enjoyed while watching dragons soar.

A classic Australian blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz matured with a mix of French and American oak. The Cabernet brings elegance to the blend while Shiraz adds fruit depth and a velvety richness to the palate. A multi-district South Australian blend sourced from premium grape growing regions including Wrattonbully, the Barossa, Coonawarra, Langhorne Creek and McLaren Vale.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Dark fruits, blackberry and ripe plums, with a lift of varietal Cabernet on the nose and a hint of savoury spice.

Flavours and Palate

Shiraz contributes a rich, mid-palate fruit sweetness and plush fruitweight, enhanced by well-balanced structural oak and long,  supportive Cabernet tannins.

Viticulture Vintage & Winemaking

Viticulture Vintage & Winemaking

Good spring rain filled soil profiles and encouraged even budburst and the establishment of healthy canopies. Perfect November weather during flowering delivered good set and even development of bunches. Ripening conditions were cool to mild without any heat spikes allowing for slow even development of flavours with bright acid retention. A great vintage for both Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
