Fifth Leg likes to explore great questions over a good wine: like why was a fossilised skeleton of a Tasmanian Tiger found in the Devil's Lair cave in WA and why was a mysterious 'fifth leg' found with the remains? Fifth Leg has developed a reputation as a 'refined larrikin' - serious about wine and the good things in life, but not at the expense of simple, easy-going fun.Â
Fifth Leg Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Merlot
This wine is a berry hat trick! Tempting aromas of blackberry, cherry and blueberry are all wrapped up by spicy, savoury oak. To add a little cheek, there are subtle cigar box and minty overtones which make for a heavenly drop. Delicious with spicy Italian sausages, a comfy chair and a good book.Â
Shiraz provides the backbone to this wine with plenty of plum, pepper and spice. Cabernet Sauvignon dark cherry, with nice grippy tannins, while Merlot fills out the mid-palate with plenty of juicy, fleshy red fruits.
