Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

This wine is inky purple-red in colour.

Aroma

When first opened there are gentle oak-derived aromas of marshmallow and coffee - followed by lavender and tart blackberry.

Palate

The palate is complex but not demanding, reflecting all the above in a medium bodied, balanced style. The tannins are soft and very fine, producing a silky texture. The fruit characters are complemented by gentle malt and chocolate flavours, a distinct regional reflection.

Cellaring Potential

While Redstone Cabernet is made to be enjoyed young, the 2008 is an outstanding vintage to cellar as well.
