Keep Calm, Christmas is Near

Christmas is getting closer and its time to start planning ahead. Ever found a good Mulled Wine recipe? Well, our Hemera Estate Single Vineyard Shiraz 2012 wine goes down like a treat as a nice mulled wine!

[box type=”info”]From the Winemaker.

This individual wine is crafted to create a seamless balance of intensity, structure and elegance. The nose has abundant plums, blueberries and sweet spiced oak. The tannins are rich and silky giving mid palate weight and enhancing the dark red cherries and mulberry characters. The oak maturation is integrated and adds toast and dark chocolate to the palate. A great choice.
