Appearance, Deep Crimson in colour.

Bouquet, Complex bouquet of tobacco leaf, red fruits and cedar oak.

Palate, Medium bodied palate, dominated by red and black current notes and a refreshing leafy edge.  Balanced by a structured tannin backbone, fresh acidity and elegant, classic, bright red fruit characters.

Conclusion, Drink now or cellar for 5- 12 years.

 

RATINGS & REVIEWS

  • 95 points, 2018 Halliday Wine Companion - 47% merlot, 40% cabernet franc and 13% cabernet sauvignon, destemmed and co-fermented in small open vats with wild yeast, matured in French barriques (30% new) for 16 months. Luscious and mouthfilling, yet fresh and focused, the seeming contradiction explained by the unusual co-fermentation of the three varieties - a positive step made feasible by the normal ripening gap being compressed by the vintage, everything ripening together. Climate change - bring it on!
