A generous dark fruit nose with lifted cabernet notes. Varietal dark choc and mint on the tongue with an intensely fruited mid palette. Subtle oak and soft yet lingering tannins.
Cool nights have helped to retain varietal Cabernet character, while an extended hang time in the ripening season has built some mid-palate generosity. This mid palate is finished off with an addition of 10% Merlot, and a combination of medium and high toast American and French oak, all of which builds layers of complexity and draws out the finish of the palate.
Grown on estate from our Langhorne Creek Vineyard which is situated off the heavy alluvial soils of the flood plains, on shallower terrra rossa soil, ideal for precision control over water use on the vines and known to provide more structural wines.
