Why do we love this wine?

While the French regions of Bordeaux and the Rhone might turn their noses up at blending Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, in the Barossa, the blend is a match made in heaven. Cabernet provides the backbone with its tannins, acidity and structure - the bones of the wine -  while the shiraz provides the body. It’s a yin and yang thing. The Hobbs Tin Lids is all class. The package is better than the parts. It’s like your getting twice the wine in one. Cabernet leads on the nose with vine leaf and dried herbs, cassis and cigar-box, while there’s a second wave that develops with more Shiraz dominant characters of plums and blueberries. Woah - there’s a lot going on here. The palate’s like a warm cuddle, soft and satisfying. The cabernet and shiraz fruit seamlessly integrated with a nod of spicy and vanillan oak. This is one of those back-up-the-truck wines. It just works.
