The Islander Estate Boxing Bay, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, 2018, Kangaroo Island, Australia
£37.75 (inc VAT)
Boxing Bay is one of our favourite places on the planet. With an idyllic white sand beach tucked away in a hard-to-find spot only the locals know. It epitomises the perfect blend of ruggedness and beauty, just like this wine.
Black pepper, black cherries, eucalyptus, toasted vanilla, cedar and baking spices.
In 2000 Jacques Lurton planted an 11ha vineyard near Parndana in Kangaroo Island's heartland and christened the estate 'The Islander'. Close planting to restrict yields and increase concentration, fermentation in concrete tanks and old fashioned basket pressing plus quality fine-grained French oak all combine to produce wines with great structure and longevity.
