This is a voluptuous, silky wine with plenty of blackcurrant and mint. The palate is mouth-filling and flavoursome with soft, velvety tannins.

Wine Colour
A rich violet with a lovely purple hue.

Wine Bouquet
Red berry fruit characteristics abound with spice, mint, blackcurrants and plum with faint cedar and cigar box elements evident from the barrel maturation.

Wine Palate
A wine of mouth filling generosity which is powerful yet soft and welcoming. Lifted berry fruit characters from the Merlot are complimented with a minty note from the Cabernet. The palate is long, round and rich yet quite approachable with enough long fine tannins to provide a classy finish.

Cellaring Notes
Produced to be immediately enjoyed, but with care will improve for a further 2-5 years.
