Quintus is a carefully structured blend containing five varieties, Saperavi, Tempranillo, Tannat, Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon. this seamless wine had been blended so as to hide the notable characteristics of each variety, whilst allowing all varities to add to the complexity and interest of the blend, such that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. This blend is 30% Sapervai, 30% Tempranillo, 15% Tannat, 13% Merlot and %12 % Cabernet. Each variety adds it own complexity to the blend resulting in a truly original wine blend that has no peer anywhere else in Australia if not the world!
Quintus is a wine with the elegance and structure to compliment a range of foods. It has sufficient acidity, tannin and fruit persistence to go with a juicy steak or a traditional oven roast, whilst it is not too overpowering for a meat based pasta dish or equivalent.
Enjoy Quintus with a range of robust meals with the confidence that it will age well over the next ten years.
Saperavi is originally from the Republic of Georgia where it is easily the most widely planted variety. Saperavi means "pigment" or "dye" in the Georgian Language and refers to the extraordinarily deep colour of the variety. This intense colour combined with the variety's naturally high acidity and tannin levels produce a structured, powerful wine with the capacity for extended ageing.
Dan Traucki review from SYMPHONIA 2008 KING VALLEY SAPERAVI
Purple colour that is awesome for its age, gentle aromas of tea leaves, gorgeous mouth filling flavours with a tight finish.
This is definitely a food wine- the richer the better. AMAZING
Did you see the write up about our Prosecco in the latest edition of Wine Selectors? They love it and you will too. Our winemaker Lilian Carter says you should have fun and not be too precious with Prosecco, and though we do like drinking it on its on it is also great to mix it up, like a Peach Bellini for instance.
