Andrew Caillard MW

Medium deep crimson. Intense dark plum, blueberry aromas with vanilla, espresso notes. Inky deep wine with lovely dark plum, blueberry fruits, fine grained classical tannins, superb mid plate richness and integrated savoury, vanilla oak. Finishes al dente/ cedary firm with long fresh dark berry fruits. Well balanced wine with understated power and well-modulated tannins.

A merlot, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon blend from the Gimblett Gravels district. Bright, fruit-focused red wine with red fruits, cedar and spicy oak flavours. An elegant wine that offers great value at this price.

Red and black fruits, dried flower, vanilla and cedar perfume, shot with sweet spices. Medium-bodied, fresh but dense in flavour and tannin, boysenberry and tobacco, ash and graphite tannin, savoury in flavour, and earthy on a precise finish. So grown up. So stylish.
