Tasting Notes

Our distinctive Cabernet sauvignon shows cassis, blackcurrant fruit and chocolate characters. A deep purple red, it’s emboldened with fine savoury tannins and spices that you’ll only find on a perfectly aged wine. a hint of earthiness leads into just the right amount of toasty cedar to finish.

‘This is very fine and pleasantly surprising given the penchant of the region for cooler climate varietal expressions. A wine that is almost Bordelais in its tightly knit tannic composure and pastille-laden, free-flowing acidity. This is long, savoury and graceful, with the pillars of its construction finding an effortless confluence with currant, dried sage, cedar and tobacco notes. An aged beauty, with plenty of life left in dem' bones’. Ned Goodwin - Halliday Wine Companion
