Winery Tasting Notes
The 2010 growing season was one of warmth and timely rainfall resulting in intense fruit flavours and naturally high colour.
A blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% Merlot sourced from the Oakridge vineyard in Coldstream.
100% hand picked grapes, crafted using traditional methods.
Brooding dark purple reds. Ripe blackcurrant and cassis, then cedar and dried tobacco leaf, blackberry and briar. A classic cabernet nose. The palate is rich and mouth filling with soft tannins that are even across the length of the palate. It is both fruit sweet and savoury at the same time, which brings refreshment and length. Silk cut.
