Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Bright magenta, Estate Vineyards Merlot/Cabernets ’16 shows lifted notes of blackberry and boysenberry, with fine touches of mint, sandalwood and fresh, ripe cherry. Prune, coffee, redcurrant and wild strawberry on the palate all add depth to the wine’s immediate appeal – balanced fruit concentration that glides to a savoury finish and plush, firm tannins."

4 Stars & 17.5+/20 Raymond Chan, March 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Dark, deep, black-hued red with slight purple hues, lighter on the edge. This has a firm nose with moderately rich aromas of blackcurrants, black plums and redcurrant fruit with soft, dark herbs adding interest. This shows good ripeness. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegant in proportion with dark-red berry fruit with blackcurrants and blackberries with herbal elements. The fruit sweetness is balanced by fine-grained tannin extraction and structure, with lacy acidity. The wine carries to a long, lingering finish. A wine of good fruit presence. 4-5 years ahead of it. A blend of 45% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc from the company’s Bridge Pa Triangle, Havelock Hills and ‘Woodthorpe Terraces’ vineyards, fermented to 13.0% alc. and aged 12 months in 10% new French oak barrels."
