WINEMAKER'S NOTES

This wine is a classic Margaret River blend of Cabernet and Merlot and is an excellent example of the style – a wine that has a varietal Cabernet bouquet and fruit structure complemented with rich dark chocolate flavours and fine tannins from ripe Merlot.

TASTING NOTES 

COLOUR: Deep purple red.

AROMA: A lifted fruit aromas of plum, layered over fine grained French oak. Some dark fruited Merlot comes through with a fine classical Margaret River Cabernet varietal lift which completes the impression.

PALATE: Rich and layered with fine fruit and generous flavours of plum and spice leading to a fine mouth-filling middle palate with fine grained tannins to finish. Oak spice completes and compliments the wine to make a classical Margaret River style.

FOOD MATCH: Butterfly lamb or aged cheddars.

CELLARING: Five years with ease.
