A classic cabernet, living up to every expectation. Layers of flavour such as dark ripe fruits, pulled together with the tannin and balance of acidity. A true Cabernet that sets the bar for all others.
94 Points - James Halliday, Wine Companion "Crushed and destemmed, open-fermented with heading down boards, 2-3 weeks on skins, matured for 18 months in French oak (7% new). A powerful cabernet with pronounced tannins woven throughout the black fruits of the full-bodied palate; has depth and length, and the balance to benefit from extended cellaring."
92 Points - Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front "There’s a sweetness to the fruit. This tips clearly into redcurrant territory. A wealth of tannin carves a wide swathe through the wine but the pour of curranty, slightly soupy, fruit creates the dominant impression. Cedary oak adds to the sweet impression. A general cabernet dustiness lingers about the edges. One thing is certain: it will live and mature in the bottle for a very long time."
From the Winery
A classic Cabernet in every sense. The nose, allowed time to open evolves from mushroom, olive and salami in to more typical purple fruits, blackcurrant and violets, backed by ripples of freshly torn mint, sage and oregano. A rich, but chiselled palate follows, framed by layers of long, chalky tannins. This sleek, seamless wine has an unmistakeable air of class. Enticing in youth with a promise of greater depth and elegance to reward careful, patient cellaring.
