Description

Composed and expressive with deep colour and flavours reminiscent of an age gone by.

Deep Crimson, composed and expressive with black currant, Cabernet aroma’s intermingled with sweet plum, thyme and sweet cedar oak.

The palate is perfectly weighted with elegant tannins, bright red and black currant fruit, holding in typical Coonawarra style and length.

Picked in late March, the individual parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot were fermented separately in small vessels, pumped over twice daily for enhanced extraction of flavours. Once fermented to dryness, they were transferred to a selection of French and American oak, with 30% new oak included. Each parcel was matured for approximately 18 months, before barrels were individually selected for the final wine.

94 points – Review by Wine Orbit – Sam Kim

“This is beautifully composed and expressed, showing blackcurrant, sweet plum, game, thyme and roasted nut aromas on the nose, leading to a wonderfully weighted palate that’s flavoursome and lingering. It’s richly textured, backed by fine-grained tannins, making it highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2030. ”

“Smells on the money varietal black currant cabernet aromas with sweet cedar oak supporting. The palate is elegant fine tannins, bright well defined ripe red and black currant cabernet fruit flavours and Coonawarra cabernet weight and length. Drinking well now.”
