COLOUR   Dark cherry with a crimson hue.

NOSE   Bright aromas of blueberry, violets and a hint of savoury spice.

PALATE   Ripe forest fruits, dried thyme and vanillin spice are carried along by natural tannins to a fresh, balanced finish.

WINEMAKING   Fruit was harvested when flavour, tannin and acid were all in balance. Fruit was fermented to retain fruit freshness and juicy flavours, natural tannins supported by French oak influence and a fresh acidity which come together to produce a Cabernet Merlot for short term cellaring or immediate drinkability.

VINTAGE NOTES   Cooler than average vintage temperatures combined with vigorous vineyard management yielded fruit with exceptional natural acidity and balanced varietal characters. Yields were low across the board.  The results have been punchy aromatic whites, fine natural acidity, spicy Shiraz and more elegant Cabernets.
