powerful, structured and beautifully balanced
A powerful, definite and beautifully balanced wine with flavours of cassis, plum and liquorice combining with just a hint of fresh tobacco, spearmint and spice. This wine displays both the true varietal and vineyard characters that the famed Terra rossa soils of the Coonawarra in South Australia are renowned for. This is a concentrated and powerful wine with a fine, elegant tannin structure. It has benefited from aging in new and seasoned French oak barriques for 15 months.
A concentrated fruit-driven wine with flavours of blackcurrant and mint, a balanced mid-palate and a tannin structure that yields to dusty elegance, providing great length and persistence to the finish.
Cassis, plum, liquorice with hints of fresh tobacco, spearmint and spice.
This wine is drinking nicely now but will benefit from aging for up to 10 years.
A powerful, full bodied wine to be served with a peppered steak, slow braised lamb or even a rich blue vein cheese.
