We welcome the Sandergrove Estate 2017 Vintage, The Good Oil Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon blend (50% Shiraz and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon.) The blend is different to the previous years of 70/30 because we physically take the time to go through the process each year with our winemaker for the best desired flavour outcome. This year the consensus was that 50/50 equalled the perfect blend of Cab and Shiraz. We are thrilled once again with the result and The Good Oil keeps delivering again and again. Will drink well now, or cellar for the future.
Picked from our older vines this blend is truly lip smackingly delicious. Smooth and easy drinking with lots of berry and chocolate. Hand picked by us, stored in American Oak barrels and then meticulously blended, this premium boutique wine is to be enjoyed with family and friends. Rumour has it that The Good Oil holds the key to world peace.
'The Good Oil'...for whatever ails ya!
