At release, the wine has a deep crimson colour with a purple hue to the edge.

Wine Bouquet
The wine has complex and enticing bouquet of dark berry fruit along with juicy black plum, spice, cedar and hints of chocolate and roasted coffee.

Wine Palate
On the palate, the wine is rich and complex with layers of dark berry fruits layered with lashings of coffee, chocolate and spice from high quality oak. The palate builds further with well-balanced, elegant tannins delivering a very generous and complete wine with textural complexity and long, persistent flavours.
