Vineyard Notes
Early temperatures in October, November and December were well above average enhancing rapid development. After a dry Spring January was mild, thank goodness. Mild dry ripening conditions later combined with low yields led to good varietal expression in Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Colour
Deep red with a purple hue.
Bouquet
Aromas of black currant and cherry with hints of vanilla and spice are evident.
Palate
The substantial palate is assertive with great structure and length. Complex concentrated sweet notes of black cherry and blackcurrant are nicely integrated with savoury herb and chocolate flavours. The wine is very well balanced with soft tannin. It has a very long finish with lingering plummy flavour.
