Color, nose and palate
A dense, dark brick red with some youthful purple hues. A complex, perfumed nose of cassis, mint, cedar and tobacco leaf. A seamless, textured palate of blackcurrant, plums and vanillin French oak complemented by a long finish of coffee bean, chocolate and fine tannins.
Cellaring potential: The wines balance and structure, combined with the use of Screw cap technology, suggest that it will improve with up to 15 years careful cellaring.

This wine is a blend of premium parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from specialist vineyards in Denmark and Frankland River. The individual parcels of fruit were “cold-soaked” prior to fermentation with specific yeasts isolated from Bordeaux. This pre-ferment treatment permits a gentler extraction of tannins, whilst enhancing fruit intensity. The wine then underwent malolactic fermentation and maturation in an equal mix of new and one-year old French oak barriques. After one year in oak, the individual barriques were subjected to an exhaustive selection process to arrive at the final blend which was then matured for a further 8 months in French oak.
