Expert Reviews

Full purple- crimson; archetypal McLaren Vale cabernet, full to overflowing with cassis and dark chocolate in the front seat, earth, black olive and tannins in the back seat. All up, a truly excellent wine at the price. Rating 95 - Drink by 2032, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2014).

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

Blackcurrant/ cassis is dominant on the palate with gentle menthol notes and hints of sweet cooked beetroot. Sweet soft tannins marry well with the fruit and deliver a bright lively finish.

Food Matching

Mushroom pizza, marinated rib eye steak, braised short ribs or mushroom stroganoff. The powerful Umami flavours overcome the savoury quality of Cabernet Sauvignon, leaving the berry flavours out in the open to shine.
