Description

Hand-picked from low-yielding, estate grown vines, this wine is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc and 17% Malbec.

Using minimal filtration, the intense varietal flavours are expressed within an impressively rich and long palate. Some naturally occurring sediment may remain. This wine has the balance and structure to improve over the next 15 years.

Tasting notes from winemaker James Kellie.

Appearance

Dense crimson with youthful purple hues.

Nose

Classic cool-climate tobacco leaf notes are balanced by ripe blackcurrant, spices and toasty French oak.

Palate

A complex, intense palate of plums, blackberry, mint and chocolate-coated coffee beans. A mid palate of velvety tannins and fine grained spicy French oak lead to a long and vibrant redcurrant finish.

Cellaring

This wine has the balance and structure to improve with careful cellaring over the next fifteen years.

Alcohol

14.0%
