Bursting with chocolate, mint and black currants.
“Wild ferment, 20% whole bunches, matured in new, 1-3yo French oak hogsheads. Plush in fruit, it’s a medium-bodied expression of cabernet sauvignon from a region usually identified with shiraz exclusively. Mixes cinnamon, tomato leaf and dried earth with grape’s finer side of florals, violets. It’s ripe in flavour and retains an appetising savouriness” Jeni Port – Halliday Wine Companion Published Aug 2020

Medium-weight in the glass. Aromas of tapenade, ironstone, blackberries and mint. Brooding and deeply-cored. Whole-bunch spice weaves its way through it, tannins are integrated though impossible to ignore. Excellent value here. 93 Points
