The Musician is crafted as a light and elegant dry red, fermented in both oak barrels and stainless steel tanks before being aged for an additional six months for minimal oak contact. It is then blended and bottled as a young red in order to retain its freshness.
The Wine Maker remarks that the "colour is vibrant deep ruby red with crimson hue. Fresh mint, eucalyptus and spice make up the lifted nose. The palate is soft and well balanced, with blackberries and cassis flavour with supple soft tannins. A perfect pairing of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
72% cabernet, 28% shiraz. It spends time in oak but the idea is that it show minimal oak flavour; designed to be light and elegant. Good colour, fragrance, texture and drinkability; the flavours flow evenly and well. Minted blackcurrant is the essential flavour profile, redcurrant and dust as sidelines. For everyday drinking it will take some beating.
