Region: Yarra Valley
Bordeaux style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon 59%, Cabernet Franc 15%, Merlot 10%, Petit Verdot 9%, Malbec 7%.
A very floral blend that has Bordeaux written all over it. It shows red plums, redcurrants, blackcurrants, cedar, tobacco, fresh herbs and roses. The palate shows resounding freshness and purity. Although this isn’t the biggest of wines, it certainly does well to make up for it with pristinely crafted tannins, razor-sharp acidity and a juicy finish. Drink in 2024. Screw cap.
