Brown Brothers Shiraz Mondeuse & Cabernet 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

First produced by John C Brown in 1954, the unique Shiraz, Mondeuse and Cabernet blend has become a Brown Brothers institution and this release marks its Golden anniversary. Each of the three varieties brings different attributes and a wonderful marriage of flavours to the final blend. Shiraz contributes spice and generous fruit; Mondeuse, deep colour, firm tannin and cellaring potential; while Cabernet gives backbone, elegance and length of flavour. This 2004 release boasts a red/black colour with aromas of red berry, spice, liquorice and chocolate. While the palate is rich, concentrated and intense, it also boasts fine tannins that are beautifully balanced with the wine. If cellared correctly this wine will be great for another 10 years or more from vintage.
