Expert Reviews

Very deep garnet in color, the nose is intensely scented with aromas of dried cherries and blackcurrant cordial over a pleasantly meaty / earthy undercurrent plus whiffs of menthol and dried lavender. Concentrated in the medium to full bodied mouth, it has a good amount of enlivening acid cutting through the dense, evolved fruit with a high level of approachable / softening tannins and long finish.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The wine is dark cherry red in colour.

Aroma

Intensely scented, the rich bouquet offers coffeelike Cabernet aromas with blackcurrant and mulberry overtones, lifted by vanillin American oak and barrel ferment characters which add a smoky complexity.

Palate

This magnificent full-bodied wine shows concentrated Cabernet fruit and complementary oak characters in perfect harmony. The palate has layers of intensely flavoured, 'sweet' blackcurrant-like varietal fruit, with hints of dark chocolate, superbly balanced.
