Winery Tasting Notes

Deep red with brick red hues.

The aroma is intense and complex displaying the beginnings of bottle development. It is strongly earthy and menthol with some licorice, chocolate and soy notes.

The palate is smooth and chocolaty with a ripe fruit warmth.

Very well integrated oak plus firm fruit tannins provides a fine, almost hidden underlying structure which slowly reveals itself on the finish.

Impeccably balanced acidity brings the wine together seamlessly and ensures longevity and a broad range of food matches. Medium to long term cellaring.

WINEMAKERS NOTES

The colour is a rich dark red with ruby hues. On first opening, the light fresh herbaceous Cabernet notes come forward. Looking deeper, a strong green capsicum spice backs up the warmer savoury meaty notes, complex oak characters and blueberry fruits on display. The palate gently builds after the first glass into a very well structured and strongly flavoured muscular wine. Dark fruits, ripe firm tannin and ample acidity blend seamlessly with the integrated oak flavour and structure completing this great example of a top end Cabernet. “By all means open it now but the rewards will come with patience. Best drinking from 2022 to 2032. Pair it with rare dry aged Angus beef, mushroom risotto, roast lamb with garlic and rosemary, a gourmet beef burger and finish with a nice hard cheese.”
