Tasting Notes
The wine displays Cabernet Sauvignon cassis and blackcurrent fruit on the nose as well as having a fresh minty, herbaceousness backed by mocca vanilla. A broad midpalate and long lasting flavours of Boysenberry and hints of sweet Mulberry follow through to join with the fresh Vanilla and Nutmeg spice on the finish.
Ageing Potential
Firm structured tannins and a long finish on the palate show great ageing potential.
