Palate Profile

Like the fabled character, the Beast is big and bold, yet has a beautiful soft side. Selected from a single block high on the hill, where the soils are shallow and the sunlight is even, you can expect the Beast to exhibit great concentration of flavour and richness, with soft grippy tannins.

On the nose the wine has dense dark fruits, black olive, tapenade, and earthy aromas. Black fruits persist on the palate; particularly blackberries bursting from the mid palate. Tannin profile is prominent, particularly at the front, but does not detract from the great length. The oak is well balanced and provides notes of toasted coconut and almonds.

Critic Awards

Deep, dark purple/red colour, with a concentrated, essency aroma of prunes and dark plums, bright and alive, not overpowering or heavy but intense and full-bodied yet retaining poise and brightness. Powerful all the same. A very smart wine with a promising future.

There is an urgency to the wine as it rushes forwards to the finish, making sure it leaves its footprints along the way. While full-bodied, there is intensity and focus, leaving space for finely ground tannins (and, of course, French oak) to make their mark.
