Seductive aromas of classic cassis and mulberry with an elegant savoury note, and once again subtle fresh herbal hints backed with tobacco and fine leather. The complex palate is redolent of dried red and blue fruits intermingled with couverture chocolate, black olive and the characteristic graphite-like minerality. The palate is long and balanced, with the acidity driving this wine. Demonstrating great depth of fruit intensity, along with a a soft, velvety and well integrated tannin profile. Another fine Cabernet in a long lineage from the Estate.

96 points – James Halliday
Weekend Australian Magazine, 31 March 2018
“Crushed, destemmed, with four weeks on skins and 18 months in French oak (60% new). A very
powerful wine, cabernet at its haughtiest best; the tannins are a firm but balanced part of the
long, structured blackcurrant and black olive finish.” Drink to 2038.
