A highly popular, easy-drinking blend, extremely food friendly and an excellent wine to enjoy on its own. Four varieties of grapes are blended to produce a fruit- driven, savoury wine that is great value-for-money.

Winery Tasting Notes
Medium garnet with a ruby rim.
From the Syrah: blackberry and black pepper nuances; from the Merlot: leather and plum aromas; from the Cabernet Franc: the aromatic spice and red currant character; and the cassis from Cabernet Sauvignon.
The blending of the fruit characters from the 4 varieties and the spine of the Cabernet Sauvignon has combined to produce a complex, fruit dominant wine. The sensitive oak aging has added a further dimension to the wine without being obvious. Richness and soft, ripe tannins make this wine a serious yet eminently drinkable wine.
