"A blend of 54% merlot, 27% cabernet sauvignon, 10% malbec, 7% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot. Dense, inky red with cassis, dark berries, cocoa powder, mocha and spicy oak. Excellent value at this price" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Jun 2021

Deepest crimson red. Brooding aromatically with notes of cassis, black olive, dried tobacco and the faintest hint of roasted hazelnut. The palate is alive with rich, ripe red to black fruit, with a midpalate that speaks volumes to the warm and long ripening period. A perfect example of medium-bodied Bordeaux style blends from the Gimblett Gravels.

A red blend of 54% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec, 7% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot.

100% grapes were destemmed and fermented in closed top stainless steel tanks. Wine matured in oak barriques (20% new) for 17 months, before being fined and filtered then bottled. 

Food Pairing: Braised lamb.
