Winery Tasting Notes
Dark brooding purple reds. Very fresh looking for its age.
Classic ripe cabernet stance – blackcurrant fruit, spice, blackpudding, leaf and cooked black plums.
Both depth and varietal definition. The palate is surprisingly soft and plush; loaded with blackcurrants, brambles and vanilla over cedar, ironstone and slate. The exit is improved a line of acidity that helps to keep the plushness and velvety tannins in check. A generous wine that is plumb and round yet still refreshing.
Can be consumed now, however the closing seal of this bottle will allow the wine to develop further complexity over 3 to 5 years in the bottle, with careful cellaring.
