Black currant, black jubes, green mulberry and tomato leaf aromas with hints of choc mint, eucalypt, bay leaf and tobacco


A full bodied wine with concentrated fruit flavour and good structure. The flavours are of black currant, red currant, black jubes, and maraschino cherry with hints of dried herb and bitter chocolate. The palate is tight with good acidity and noticeable gravelly tannin that combine to give the wine the classic drying structure one expects from this variety. A wine that will undoubtedly reward those who cellar.
