It is characterized by its medium to full body, moderate tannins, and a well-balanced profile, making it a versatile and enjoyable wine.

Tasting Notes

Leafy berry aromas are to the fore, due to the wine being almost half Cabernet Sauvignon. A beautiful deep colour with youthful tints. Ripe Cabernet fruit complimented by the spice and plushness of the Shiraz component. Fine long tannins and acid line will see this age well over the medium term. A lovely drinking wine as always.
