This Bordeaux-style red blend exhibits a deep, garnet centre, with bright hues on the rim. The rich, perfumed blackcurrant and cassis is enhanced by layers of lead pencil shavings and subtle cedar oak nuances. With more aeration, the wine shows red cherry and mulberry fruit, fine-grained tannins and a beautiful balance. Remarkably accessible now, but it will continue to open and mature over time.
Wood Maturation: 19 months in 100% new French oak barrels
Tasting Notes: The wine displays a dark maroon core with a bright red rim. Wonderful aromas of blackcurrant, dark cherry, and lead pencil with a touch of floral notes fill the air. On the palate, a concentrated core of dark fruit is finished off with fine layers of cocoa, sea breeze and a hint of savouriness. The tannins are as smooth as silk. With well integrated oak, the wine has a viscosity to it that completes it.
