The Chertsey name was born out of the Tolley family; it is the village in which the Tolley family lived in the United Kingdom. In Australia it is the name of the house in which Kym’s Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather lived in Adelaide. This wine honours the families winemaking heritage.

The deep garnet colored 2010 Chertsey is a 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc blend displaying a classically scented nose of cassis, ripe plums and cigar boxes with touch of cloves and aged meat. Medium-bodied and showing great poise and expression on the palate, its taut cassis and cedar flavors are framed by medium to firm, grainy tannins and lively acid before finishing long. Drink it now to 2024+. Rating 92+, Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, eRobertParker.com (MAY/2014)
Winery Tasting Notes
Deep crimson red in colour.
A tightly interwoven aroma of floral violets, plums and herb garden spices. Very complex with the subtle use of oak allowing the bouquet to radiate out of the glass.
The palate is medium bodied and quite voluptuous in the mouth. The tannins are quite soft and opulent but linger on the finish and persist. A very attractive wine and a true reflection of balance, elegance and power.
