Product Description

Colour: Red with hints of purple.

Aroma: Dusty notes followed by cherry, blackberry, black currant and chocolate integrate with well developed toasty oak.

Palate: The front palate is a little timid leading to an intense mid palate and a very long finish of good tactile tannins. This expressive aged Cabernet, displays the fruit, intense palate and mouth filling tannin that makes this variety so desirable.

Cellaring: Although drinking well now expect this wine to evolve favourably well beyond 2030.

93 Points “Lifted aromatics of raspberry, sour cherry and a touch of eucalypt. A mid-weighted wine, the palate has the aforementioned sour cherry element and a tart blackberry crunchiness to it that gives the wine a youthful vividness and liveliness. There’s ample structure and acidity framing up this elegant, cooler-climate cabernet that is a very good example of its genre. An enjoyable wine that has drinkability now and 7 to 10 years into the future.” The Real Review, Aaron Brasher, Feb 2021
