"Medium deep crimson. Intense black olive tapenade, dark chocolate, dark cherry aromas with roasted walnut notes. Muscular firm but vigorous wine with deep set choco-berry fruits, cedar/ sandalwood notes and grippy dry tannins. Finishes firm and tight with attractive dark fruit, sappy/ leafy notes at the finish. 2023 - 2030"

This is a very deeply coloured wine, as you would expect from a Malbec base. It displays rich plummy, jammy Gimblett Gravels fruit on the nose with hints of tobacco and dried herbs. On the palate it is a medley of power and concentration from Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon allied with softer Merlot tannins.

Food Pairing: This is a full bodied and complex wine, and an ideal accompaniment to red meat dishes.

ABV: 14%
