The Uprising, a new wine aged for 30 days in Rum Barrels, pays homage to Australia’s Rum Rebellion of 1808. Due to the Government's hindering of the rum trade, citizens and soldiers banded together to overthrow them. We aged a portion of this wine in Rum barrels lending a warm brown sugar finish to this dark jammy wine.
The vintage 2016 is Shiraz dominant lending bright raspberry fruit and plush tannin structure with Cabernet Sauvignon to provide blackberry fruits , palate weight and structure and then Grenache to provide spice and fruit sweetness on the palate. The nose has intense lifted mocha, caramel and baking spice notes . On the palate the wine is full and mouth coating with brown sugar, jammy blackberry and chocolate notes.
