Wine Colour
On release the wine is a deep red with a vibrant purple hue.

Wine Bouquet
The wine has an aroma of rich blackcurrant, licorice, subtle spice and a touch of dried basil. French oak maturation is also evident with subtle aromas of tobacco leaf and cedar.

Wine Palate
This is a wine of great intensity. It has distinctive blackcurrant and cassis fruit flavours. Subtle oak characters of cedar cigar box and spice are also evident. The tannins are fine and elegant – a hallmark of the varietal. The palate is well balanced, complex and fulfilling and lingers on the finish.

Cellaring Notes
This wine has been crafted to be enjoyed upon release but will continue to develop and reward patience with careful cellaring up to and possibly beyond 2019.
