From the bottle:
“Marquee Selections proudly presents our Australian Organic Wine Range. No chemical sprays or additives have been used to produce this wine, allowing you to taste the true flavour of our grapes as nature intended.
Shiraz is “king” of the red grapes in Australia and Cabernet Sauvignon the “king” worldwide. This famous Australian blend emphasizes the balance of both these regal varieties.
Concentrated raspberry from Shiraz (55%) with blackberries and mint from Cabernet (45%) showcase a luxurious mouth feel.
Today’s wine comes from a new brand and label from Marquee Selections which specializes in finding really delicious organic wines from all over the world. There will be other wines coming in this line, but you may remember Marquee Selections as the people responsible for such wines as the Caligiore Reserve Malbec which is currently on the Top 10 list.
The 2009 Marquee Organic Shiraz Cabernet begins with a very strong aroma of plum as well as some other dark berries and a bit of cinnamon spice. The wine tastes of some jammy fruit (black cherry and plum) but not nearly as much as the aroma suggests. It also some good tannins and a little bit of leather. The wine ends with a nice burst of spice that lasts a long time along with plum and black cherry notes. Make sure you give this one a good amount of time to really open up to appreciate it at its best.
