The 2014 L’Impératrice (the Empress) is a Syrah blend consisting of 80% Shiraz and 20% Cabernet.
A complex nose, reflecting the shiraz fruit with dominant liquorice and complex spices. Another favourite at the cellar door, each time we open a bottle the depth of the wine has grown.
Drinking beautifully now, will continue to develop over the next decade.
The label pictures Empress Eugenie, married to Napoleon III. Her grandfather was William Kirkpatrick. William was a wine negotiant and vigneron in Malaga, Spain. This family relationship to the owners of Equus @ Moonambel inspired our premium range of Syrah.
