Bright cassis, mulberry and violet perfume. Exotic regional cabernet
aromas of sandalwood and mashed currants leap from the glass.


Supple, seamless and long. Great intensity and focus, framed with
fine fruited tannins supported by subtle choc oak tannins. A medium bodied
cabernet of great poise. Will cellar more than 15 years.

Growing Conditions

An early start to vintage. Winter rains were above
average. An unusually dry hot summer with some rain. This led to a promising
start to the vintage. Whites were picked early in the cool crisp dawns,
resulting in some wonderful fresh and vibrant wines.

16 months in 50% new French oak barriques and 50% in one
