The “Catharina” is a flagship wine deep and rich red in colour. There are elegant berry aromas with hints of oak that make it alluring. The appealing nose flows through onto the palate where the big lively fruit fills the mouth and goes through to the finish with long, lovely, grippy tannins. The palate is well balanced and there are strong varietal and regional characters evident on the palate. This wine shows definition and characters associated with an elegant premium Barossa Shiraz.
Rated *****Winestate Magazine – Sep/Oct 2015 Edition – “World’s Greatest Syrah/Shiraz Challenge X – Varietal Tasting” – Judge’s comments: “Lots of drinking pleasure to be had with this one, enthused one judge. A savoury touch to the nose and a palate thick with blackberry and plum flavours with a strong oak finish.” (Equal top in category & Finalist)
