A ripe, vibrant and refined red, with slightly gritty tannins around a plush, focused core of cherry, raspberry pie, cinnamon and clove flavors, coming together harmoniously as the finish persists. Best from 2016 through 2020. 136 cases made. Wine Spectator 93 Points

Buty Rediviva of the Stones 2012

Both savory and sweet, this blend of syrah, cabernet sauvignon and mourvèdre displays lovely depth and density, with vivid floral, black raspberry, beach smoke and baking spice notes. In both the nose and on the palate, the syrah brings lush red fruit, with deep raspberry and black cherry layers. The cabernet adds high-toned floral elements and substantial mid-palate weight, as well as blackberry, currant and olive flavors, with the mourvèdre contributing to the wine’s tannic structure and spice elements of cinnamon, nutmeg and white pepper.

Rubus Proprietary Red Blend Australia 2014

Tasting Notes: Deep, dark ruby color, aromas of blue fruits, confectionery and subtle licorice characters, thick luscious palate with good structure and soft finish.

The Blend is 44% Rubired, 31% Durif and 25% Shiraz.

Rubired is a cross between Tinto Cao and Alicante Ganzin (which is itself a cross between Alicante Bouschet and Aramon Rupestris Ganzin). It is known for being particularly adapted to the hot climate and producing dark wines, as the color is not only coming from the grape's skin, but also from the grape juice itself. It was developed in 1958 by H.P. Olmo of the University of California Davis.

Durif, also known as Petite Sirah, is also a cross of two different grape varietals: Syrah and Peloursin. It was created by French botanist François Durif in 1860 while keeping Syrah and Peloursin plants under the same roof; it happened from a natural process called "cross-pollination." The grape itself is known for its very aromatic, plummy character.

Shiraz, which we all know for being the most recognized grape varietal of Australia, brings some minty, spicy and fruity characteristics to the wines.

Grapes are crushed and destemmed then placed in rotary fermenters where three rotations per day break up the cap and extract color and tannin. Commercial yeast is added for fermentation. The juice is pressed to stainless steel for malolactic fermentation, undergoes oak maturation for 9 months, then is stored in stainless steel.

Pairs well with BBQ lamb with roast vegetables.
