The fruit for this 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc organic wine come from 30 year old vines, and after the hand harvest the wine will spend between 12 to 15 months in one year old French oak barrels.
It is medium to dark ruby in colour showing bright cherry, allspice, and a touch of clove on the nose. The highly polished attack is soft and silky with medium strength ripe tannins and light cherry fruit, finishing long and sweet.
REVIEWS & AWARDS
“The wine has vibrant ripe fruit aromas punctuated by some earthiness and chocolate on the nose. To taste there is the same ripe fruit and firm but not aggressive tannins giving a lingering finish. All in all an elegant balanced wine with good complexity. 17/20.” – The Wine Club
