Wine Colour
At release, the wine is a deep red with a vibrant purple hue.

Wine Bouquet
The wine has an aroma of rich blackcurrant, subtle spice, tomato leaf and a touch of eucalypt. French oak maturation is also evident with subtle aromas of cedar and dark chocolate.

Wine Palate
This is a wine of great intensity. It has distinctive blackcurrant and cassis fruit flavours. Subtle oak characters of cedar cigar box and spice are also evident. The tannins are fine and elegant – a hallmark of the varietal. The palate is well balanced, complex and fulfilling and lingers on the finish.

Cellaring Notes
This wine can be enjoyed upon release but will reward careful cellaring up to and possibly beyond 2023.
