Winemaker's comments

An elegant, yet complex wine, exhibiting typical Cabernet varietal flavours and tannin structure.

Oak Treatment

A portion of this blend was matured for 18 months in selected French and American oak hogsheads.


While ready to be enjoyed now, this wine will reward careful cellaring in the medium term.


16° - 20°C

Tasting Notes


Deep ruby red.


A complex nose of blackberry and cassis with hints of spice and licorice.
