Being able to blend with five varieties, this wine is contstantly an award winning wine.

The aromas are a complex of leafy Cabernet characters blended with plumy fruits and black spices from the Malbec and Petit Verdot.

The palate explodes with rich dark fruits and herbal flavours and persists throughout the mid palate where it gathers further weight from the smokey French oak and dusty tannins.

The silky finish allows the fruit flavour to continue throughout the palate giving great persistence and length. A classic wine with immense structure and longevity.

This wine is aged in selected French oak barriques for 24 months, which imparts a fine grain tannin structure and length.

To fully appreciate this wine, we recommend that it be decanted 3 to 4 hours before serving.

Cabernet Sauvignon 47%, Merlot 18%, Cabernet Franc 16%, Malbec 11%, Petit Verdot 8%.
