Shinas Estate The Executioner Blend 2018

Shinas Estate The Executioner is their flagship wine, a premium blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Viognier. Opaque burgundy to brick red colour, suggesting a lot of extraction and a little maturity. The soft and rich nose has loamy herbal aromas that develop into dark berries and mocha. The palate shows red cherry or berry fruits and a nice hit of spice. The best part is that the wine is rich but not heavy.

55% Shiraz, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% ViognierThe Executioner is produced from premium vineyards. Shinas Estate is based on the outskirts of Mildura, Victoria on the majestic Murray River. The region's Mediterranean climate and ancient soils make the perfect partnership for growing premium grapes and producing fine quality wines. 

Shinas Estate Wines minimises irrigation of the vineyard, which reduces cropping levels and enhances fruit quality. The fruit is left on the vines long beyond traditional periods, allowing the intense flavours that characterise the wine to develop. In true boutique style, only the highest quality fruit is selected for harvest.

The wine receives 2 years of barrel ageing and 1 year of bottle ageing prior to its release.
