88% Merlot & 12% Cabernet Sauvignon
Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"Dark plum colour. The nose is rich with scented chocolate and ripe berry fruit notes. Full bodied palate with dark fruits and liquorice flavours. The structure is firm yet balanced, with lingering ripe dark fruits. Handpicked Gimblett Gravels grapes were fermented in small vats with aerated pump overs, hand plunging and long maceration to develop fine tannins and complex flavours. The wine was then aged gently in oak barrels before being bottled."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2014 Vintage)
"​The 2014 vintage, blended from Merlot (88 per cent) and Cabernet Sauvignon (12 per cent), was hand-picked in the Gimblett Gravels and matured for 18 months in French oak barrels (10 per cent new). Showing good potential, it is deeply coloured and mouthfilling, with fresh, strong, very youthful plum, blackcurrant and spice flavours, a subtle seasoning of oak and ripe, supple tannins. Best drinking 2018+."
Yvonne Lorkin, May 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"​Holy moly!  How do I even begin describing how glorious this wine smells?  Here goes: Vanilla bean, ultra-ripe berries, dark cocoa powder and plum – almost like a liquid Jelly-Tip inside the glass.  To drink, it’s incredibly fresh, vibrant and boasts sinewy, muscular tannins and a marathon-like finish."
