    95 / 100
    A sleek little number by any reckoning with plenty of character. Lifted aromas with Coonawarra regional mint, cassis, black cherry. Smooth entry all the way, love the heightened spice content and bitter chocolate. Grainy tannins to close, touch of leather. It's got the lot.

    • Winemaking

      Vintage 2017 was cool and late by recent standards, but we picked late April which is the long-term normal time for Cabernet Sauvignon. This year’s blend is 99% Cabernet Sauvignon with 1% Petit Verdot. Matured in 38% new tight grained French oak for 17 months prior to bottling in December 2018.

    • Tasting Notes

      Deep, dark purple red, the nose is dense with pure aromatics of cassis and blackberry with a touch of licorice and fine integrated coffee from the oak. The palate is rich with great depth of cassis blackberry fruit and fine grainy tannins. This wine will reward careful cellaring and we recommend decanting before drinking.
