Rich and full-bodied classic combination of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with a touch of Clare mint.
Seamless and possessing distinct Clare Valley style and poise. The wine is made with minimal intervention to preserve fruit purity. The bulk of the fruit for this is sourced from Knappstein's Yertabulti, Enterprise and Ackland vineyards.

Has fought the good fight with the limitations of the vintage that, and in any event, has provided a cooler than usual growing season that suits this blend; the savoury/spice edges to the core of red and black fruits are in keeping with these varieties.
