Tasting Notes

This wine has an abundance of black- and blueberry aromas and hints of cigar box and tobacco spiciness on the nose. The palate is exceptionally full and round, yet precise with the creme de cassis, blackcurrant and cedar wood of the nose following through with notes of pencil shavings, red capsicum, tealeaf and subtle cloves. Grainy tannins and a perfect acidity balance the dark berry fruit on a rich mid-palate, suggesting significant ageing protentional. The finish is smooth and complex with its offering of red liquorice, fennel bulb and exotic spice and an impressive length. Under optimal cellaring conditions, this wine will age for at least 10 - 15 years from vintage.
