Tasting Notes

Intense aromatics of blackcurrant, dried herbs, graphite and cedar notes. The rich and concentrated palate of dark fruit combines with integrated cedar, spice and mocha notes. Elegantly balanced, and textured with fine-grained tannins this wine finishes with excellent mineral length. Distinct and age-worthy with the ability to age gracefully for up to 20 years from vintage in good cellar conditions

Technical Notes

Destemmed and crushed: 100% destemmed and crushed.Cap management: Hand plunged - peak temperature of 33° Celcius. Fermentation Vessel: Open top fermenters Maturation: 20 months in French oak barrique; 60% new. Cellaring potential 5 -15+ years


A classically expressed Bordeaux-style red, the wine is superbly fruited and concentrated; the lifted bouquet shows cassis, dark plum, anise, cigar and cedar characters, leading to a superbly concentrated palate that displays awesome power and richness, while remaining perfectly balanced and firmly structured with loads of fine, chalky tannins. Splendidly sturdy and proper. From the Gimblett Gravels district. At its best: 2020 to 2030. Score - 96. (Sam Kim,, July 2018)
