Burrowing Owl Estate Winery Athene 2012

This co-fermentation of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon produced a rich and seductive wine with balance and great complexity. It is full bodied and packed with concentrated black fruit flavours of black cherry, blackberry and baked blueberry over a background of intriguing spices, bittersweet dark cocoa and earthy notes that persist on a long finish. The tannins are well integrated with a hint of a dusty cedar grip making the wine suitable for further ageing but also fabulous for drinking now with big, rich and hearty dishes such a beef stew or elk tenderloin smothered in peppercorn sauce.
