Wine Colour
At release, the wine is a deep, dark garnet colour with a subtle purple hue to the edge

Wine Aroma / Bouquet
The wine has an enticing, lifted bouquet of violets, blackcurrants, blackberry and a hint of chocolate. The overall aroma is one of understated richness and elegance.

Wine Palate
On the palate it is a very well-balanced wine with ripe black fruit characters, coffee and chocolate interweaving harmoniously. There is an understated power to the wine, with layers of complexity building across the palate and then finishing elegantly with long, fine tannins. It is a generous wine yet retains poise and the elegance of great Cabernet Sauvignon.

Cellaring Notes
This wine is evolving well at release yet should cellar well to 2028 or possibly longer.
