75% Cab 25% Malbec Fruit was sourced from the Agincourt block of Cabernet sauvignon planted in 1995 and Malbec planted in 1990. The Agincourt block is one of the more sheltered sites and this Cabernet clone is highly aromatic and lifted. Perfume is the signature of this wine with lifted bramble, redcurrant and mixed berry fruits. Bright fruit flavours include cranberry, mulberries and blueberries Perfume is the signature of this wine with lifted bramble, redcurrant and mixed berry fruits. Bright fruit flavours include cranberry, mulberries and blueberries. Fresh cut box hedge bringing a leafy lift and many tannins and clove spices dance with vibrant acidity and an elegant fruit drive. The Malbec brings an energy and bright crunch to the wine. The aromatics and accessible fruit palate make this a deliciously approachable Cabernet blend. Hand harvested, transferred across a sorting table, destemmed and then crushed into the half-tonne open fermenters. Hand plunged twice daily with some extended time on skins to soften the Cabernet tannins. Maturation in French Bordeaux shaped barrels; only 5% new oak to enhance the juicy fruit palate and immediate enjoyment.

James Halliday's Wine Companion

A wine of absolute charm. It's a 75/25% blend in cabernet's favour though it presents as a seamless whole. Blackcurrant, mulberry, roasted nut and fresh briar flavours come brightened by redcurrant. Tannin has melted in, clean acidity keeps it all fresh and true, the finish feels assured. It will age gracefully and (very) well. 1st Aug 2020. Campbell Mattinson

Lovely drinking, easy drinking, lots of easy pleasure, plush and soft tannins a feature, mulberry and boysenberry fruit too. Joyous kind of feel, uplifting, fleshy and cuddly, with barley there tannins doing just enough alongside some sprigs of dried herb for detail and added interest, the finish just slightly too lemony tangy sherbetty. Surprisingly lush in profile, flesh and puddles of bombastic character and easy to enjoy. Nice. Drink by 2030.
