Dutschke ‘Uncle’ Shiraz-Cabernet-Merlot 2017
Having produced this red blend for many years, Dutschke has always proven to be a wine that can be enjoyed as a young wine, but is consistently reliable in developing rich and complex characters during medium to long term cellaring.

A trio of reds in the blend: shiraz, cabernet and merlot. It’s leafy fresh with licorice, soy sauce, coffee essence in the mix of ripe and some tart fruit. It holds its own.

Wayne and uncle Ken have been making this blend of Shiraz and Cabernet with a dash of Merlot from their legendary St Jakobi vineyard for almost 30 years now, and this is as bright, crunchy, characterful and gorgeous as ever. A slightly cooler season in the Barossa has elevated its fragrance, spicy and tangy red berry crunch, without perturbing its black fruits depth and impressive persistence. Bargain.

Lovely blend of Shiraz, CS and Merlot from Barossa. Pronounced aromas and flavours of blackcurrant, blackberry, raspberry, coffee, chocolate, vanilla and black plum. Beautifully balanced, med+ acidity, body and length
