Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Deep colour; the bouquet adds to the expectation with sweet leather a la Hunter Valley, licorice and a caravan of spices. The sheer finesse of the palate brings the wheel full circle; French oak adds to the cedary/savoury/spicy elements behind blackberry and plum fruit.

Winemaker's Notes

With thick skins, royal purple in color, and elegant flavors derived from ideal grape-growing conditions, cabernet sauvignon provides the structure and palate length. Shiraz grapes, akin to small black pearls, provide the intensity, opulence and flesh.
