What a fantastic wine, with juicy smooth dark fruits aromas, perfectly balanced. And the length, such a persistance in mouth! It keeps going on and on, taking you through a delicious journey.
Great to drink now, but also has got the profile and potential to age for another good 11 years.

Research scientist Dr Roger Harris established his vineyard in 1986, relatively early in the development of the region, and quickly developed a reputation for first-class wines. Each component of this wine was open- fermented and matured separately in French and American oak before a final blending decision was made. The result is highly attractive juicy red and blackcurrant fruit on the silky medium-bodied palate, with oak used to full advantage. This is a classic wine with a 15-year future.

Winery Tasting Notes
Attractive deep red colour.
An appealing mix of peaches, spice and savouriness on the nose.
Gorgeous smooth palate with meaty, savoury and dark fruit characters. Perfect balance and a smoky persistence that carries on and on.
