The Islander Estate Vineyards

2018 Boxing Bay

2018 Boxing Bay

The Boxing Bay brings a new dimension to our Estate premium range.  Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic Aussie blend, but like all the wines from our Estate range, our takes its inspiration firmly from Europe. 

While power and structure abound in the Cab Sauv, the Shiraz adds softness and elegance.  A European approach in the winemaking brings these two together with elegance and restraint. 

This is a limited release with for us, so definitely one to try to drink now or cellar and reap the rewards.

Wine Enthusiast: Dark purple at the core, this supremely ripe wine’s nose bursts in aromas of cassis, oodles of menthol, Black Mission fig and Morello cherry. All at once sweet in fruit and savory in spice, this is a vibrant and slightly baroque wine in aromas and flavors. In structure, it is well-proportioned and seamless, leaving the taster to revel in the complex flavor dimensions. Creamy tannins are juxtaposed by roaring, refreshing acidity. The spicy finish recalls memories of walking through Istanbul’s Spice Market. Buckle up, this is quite a flavor ride. Drink now–2026.
