Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep crimson with purple hues.

Aroma

The nose exhibits pure-fruited aromas of freshly crushed blackberries, hints of spice and fruitcake and a backdrop of roasted meats.

Palate

The full-bodied palate is rich and full with lively red berries also showing through with a touch of earth and assertive, grippy tannins. Dense and chewy yet quite refined, this wine needs at least a year to be enjoyed, but will reward patient cellaring.
