Palate Profile

Complex and elegant, offering rich fruit characters of cassis and blackcurrant with earthy nuances. French oak giving hints of cedar and tobacco to finish.

At release, the wine is an intense red colour with a vibrant purple hue to the edge.

The wine has an enticing, lifted aroma of ripe blackcurrants, choc mint, subtle spice and a hint of dried tomato leaf. The overall nose character is one of richness and elegance.

On the palate it is a very well-balanced wine with ripe blackcurrant characters, along with chocolate and mint intermingling harmoniously with oak characters of cedar and subtle tobacco. There is an understated power to the wine, with layers of complexity building across the palate and then finishing elegantly with long, fine tannins. It is a generous wine yet retains poise and the elegance of great Cabernet Sauvignon.

Critic Awards

Solidly built yet packed with bright fruit and even brighter acidity. Flavours of blackberries, mint and woodsy, cedary oak. The palate is full bodied yet restrained with sinewy tannins pulling tightly, needing more time to loosen their grip.
