Cabernet Sauvignon’s vibrant red fruit and cassis combines with Cabernet Franc’s tobacco leaf and bell pepper set against the backdrop of Merlot’s soft plum and vanilla spice frame. Explosive evolving aromas of ripe black berries, plush red fruit and cedarwood develop in the glass. The full bodied and complex palate is brimming with dark fruit and peppermint chocolate, alongside of integrated tannins and a luxuriant finish. A wine of great pedigree which was recognised as a 95-pointer Gold Medal winner in the Decanter 2022 Awards; awarded Riedel Trophy for Best Bordeaux style Red Blend, Vinolok Trophy for Best Premium Wine, Investec Trophy for Best Red Wine Overall, in The Trophy Wine Show 2022.

    Brooding baked blackberry bouquet. Big and bold with huge intensity of fruit and lashings of vanillin oak and plentiful polished tannins to support. A blockbuster style.

  2. 95

    Lovely complex melted chocolate, roasted coffee, blackcurrant, sesame oak notes, fresh supple palate with gentle dark berry dark chocolate, vanilla spice flavours and grainy tannins. Very good volume and oak complexity.

    Glorious, wafting cassis and blackberry aromas. The palate is fleshy and weighty. Good length.
