Produced from a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 8% Malbec this wine incorporates some of the more opulent parcels of fruit from the Vasse Felix vineyards to make a more approachable wine on release. Maturation takes place in French oak barriques (1-5 years old) for a period of 11 months.
Totally opaque black dark red core with a dark red hue. Elevated red to black currant and mulberry scents are tied to dusty vanillin cedar, tobacco and spicy bay leaf notes. Medium bodied the palate is blessed with a generous mix of red to black currant and mulberry fruits which overlay cedary tobacco characters, dusty earth, traces of bay leaf and spice. A refined yet sturdy tannin structure provides the framework. Concludes long and amply fruited yet elegant.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Alc. 14.5%
