86% Merlot, 5% Malbec, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon & 4% Cabernet Franc


Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"An outstanding example of a merlot-dominant blend: soft, supple and full bodied. Sweet black cherry, red berries and chocolate notes prevail, with hints of wild herbs and tobacco in the background. Silky tannins and a long, persistent finish complete the story. Cellar for 10+ years."


5 Stars & 96/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, September 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"A glorious rendition of Bordeaux-style red, the wine shows lifted aromas of blackcurrant, spiced plum, floral, game and cedar characters with nuances of dried herb and anise. The palate is magnificently expressed, exhibiting outstanding depth and richness, superbly supported by silky texture and fine chalky tannins. Mouthfilling and immensely appealing. A blend of merlot, malbec, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc. At its best: now to 2027."


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"The impressive 2015 vintage, estate-grown at Onetangi, is a blend of Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, matured for a year in French oak barriques. A powerful but approachable red, it is dark, fragrant and full-bodied, with highly concentrated, plummy, spicy flavours, showing excellent ripeness and complexity, good tannin backbone, and a rich, harmonious finish. Already delicious, it's well worth cellaring to 2020+."


5 Stars & 18.5+/20 (94) September 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"Full, dark, deep ruby-red colour with slight garnet hues, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is beautifully and elegantly proportioned with well-concentrated aromas of sweetly ripe dark-red and black plums harmoniously melded with a layer of spicy oak entwined with dark herbs and curranty nuances. This has finesse and intensity. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegant with a fine and light heart with concentrated flavours of ripe, sweet, dark-red and plum fruit along with succulent berried fruits, unveiling dark herbs and curranty hints. The fruit is sweet with a layering of oak spice, and supported by fine-grained tannin extraction lending structure and balance. The acidity is fresh and lacy, adding to the energy, and the wine carries to a long and sustained, sweet finish. This is an elegant, beautifully balanced Merlot-based blend with ripe black plums, nuances of herbs and currants, and spicy oak. Match with roast lamb, beef and venison over the next 8-10+ years. A blend of 86% Merlot, 5% each Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, and 4% Cabernet Franc, fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 60% new French oak."
