Intense dark purple.
Intense, dark purple in colour with aromas of fresh forest fruits and hints of cedar, vanilla and cocoa. The rich, soft palate has delightful classic blackcurrant and cedar flavours, while subtle nutmeg, liqueur cherry and mocha add to the wonderful complexity of this flavour-packed wine. A good acid backbone provides firm structure in this full flavoured Cabernet and the powdery tannins deliver excellent length, with a firm, yet seamless smooth finish. This elegant, cool climate Cabernet Sauvignon will improve for the next decade or more, although it makes for wonderful drinking now.

Traditional open top fermenters were used to fermented on skins over seven to ten days using a variety of yeasts to maximise fruit vibrancy and intensity. MLF was encouraged on skins and completed in tank. French and Hungarian oak adds lovely sweet vanilla and powdery tannins, complimenting the firm, subtle grape tannins. The final blend is a compilation of fruit from a number of growers in the region, along with some of our estate fruit. The regional blending from several vineyards has produced wonderful complexity and depth of flavours.
Deep black cherry
A deep, black cherry hue with spicy plum and pepper, and the aroma of mixed berries lead to a full, rich palate. Sweet blueberries and mulberries flavours are underscored by subtle anise and nutmeg integrating with the savoury oak and supple tannins. The obvious fruit flavours are harnessed by the elegant structure, making for a refined and aromatic Shiraz, with delightful drive. The long, lingering powdery tannins deliver a seamless, smooth finish.
An elegant cool climate Shiraz that is superb drinking now, yet can be savoured over the next decade.

Delicious flavours of cherry and plum, with hints of nutmeg and chocolate integrate smoothly through the vanilla oak. Robust yet refined this elegant, cool climate Shiraz features delightful drive, length and supple tannins. Enjoyable now for its wonderful flavours, or savour over the next decade.
With its rich, delicate flavours, this wine pairs beautifully with a Sunday roast lamb, an Italian casserole or eggplant parmigiana.
Fantastic now, but will also age gracefully for years.
