Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) This vintage shows massive floral perfume with underlying redcurrant, cedar, black pepper, coriander spice and hints of Turkish Delight. The macerated red fruit carries through onto a palate layered with marzipan, minerals and a superb velvety structure. Textured, composed and seamless in style.

Winemaker's Notes

Stout lovers rejoice! This is your wine. Intense spicy notes on the nose which is supported by ripe plum, black fruit and violet aromas. The wine has a grippy acidity and well integrated tannins with a well textured and rounded mouth feel. Long, elegant and succulent finish with superb structure from the Cabernet Sauvignon.

    You have to try it. Do not let the strong nose deter you. If you loke cabernet you will love this wine.
