Satsuma plums, red cherries and raspberry lift out of the glass. Backed by delicate hints of dark olives, tobacco and savoury characteristics.
Soft and supple and full of flavour. Black olive, blackcurrant, raspberry and cherry fruits are accompanied by silky, soft tannins that coat the palate. The refreshing acidity balances the supple tannin and red fruits for an extremely smash-able wine that leaves you wanting more.
A dry and warm summer meant vintage 2020 started a month earlier. This warm weather in our southern vineyards provided perfect ripening conditions. Lower yields produced some exceptional flavours and intensely aromatic, punchy wines.
The Cabernet Sauvignon component was held on skins for 10 days to help build structure. The Merlot was pressed earlier to retain bright fruit aromatics. 10% new French oak was used to complement the fruit while providing some subtle mocha and vanillin oak sweetness. 12 months maturation in oak and tank.
Dark red hues.
