Winery Tasting Notes
Cabernet Sauvignon (75%), Merlot (25%).
Dense, deep red with a purple core.
Lifted Cabernet Sauvignon varietal characters of blackcurrant and mulberry. Merlot adds a plummy richness while the oak is subtle and supportive, adding spice and cedar notes.
Dark cherry and blackcurrant flavours dominate the palate, with some accurate varietal leafy notes. The wine has a tight structure, with excellent grip, definition and length, showing ripe tannins and a savoury backdrop of understated oak.
Enjoy with antipasto, tapas and pasta dishes.
