Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Dense, dark, with vibrant hues.

Aroma

Strong influences from the shiraz plums and berries with lifted oak aromas coming through very attractively.

Palate

This is rich and flavoursome, and it is here that the cabernet sauvignon flavours of chocolate and cassis shine through and linger. Tannins are fine-grained and the oak adds structure and length as well as its distinctive spice and vanillin.
