61% Shiraz, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Grenache, 4% Cinsaut, 4% Mourvèdre and 4% Viognier As the name suggests the Big Easy is bold in flavour and yet easy in demeanor.
Pure, ripe, purple and red fruits immediately leap out the glass in an array of complexity, amplified by hints of rose-petals and boiled sweets. Warm notes of milk chocolate and roasted coffee round off wonderful complexity and depth. The Syrah dominated palate is juicy and succulent with the Cabernet Sauvignon backbone providing an inky structure. A dash of Rhône varieties give a dried, provincial-herb edge to the exquisitely balanced finish.
