Mission Briefing

Codename:

Crikey!

Not all Invisible Men, it appears, are created equal. In contrast to the in-your-face power put forward by today’s Shiraz offering, this wine likes to take it a little slower. Crafted by renowned Australian winemaker Charles Cimicky, today’s wine allows Cimicky’s expert winemaking skills to shine.

Incredibly fruit forward on both the nose and palate, it’s easy to see why Stephen Tanzer loved this wine so much - and why he awarded it 91 Points.

We loved both of today’s Invisible Men offerings, and felt they showed a unique differentiation in flavor profile. Grab a bottle (or case!) of each and experience these Aussie wonders for yourself.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep, inky crimson through and through, with only a touch of ruby at the edge.

Smell:

Very fruit forward on the nose, with fresh blackberry and black currant mingling with espresso bean, subtle toasted oak, warm baking spices, and hints of violet.

Taste:

Well rounded on the palate, with sweet plum and boysenberry laid overtop sweet tobacco leaf, sandalwood, earthy dustiness, pomegranate, and earl grey tea.

Finish:

Long and lasting, with an elevated fruitiness and toasty spice at the very edge of the palate.

Pairing:

Grilled lamb burgers with red onion aioli.
