Deep magenta in colour , the bouquet has aromas of bright cassis fruit with hints of cedary oak spice. The palate is full,fresh and lively, showinf bright dark fruits such as Satsuma plum and a hint of chocolate, with plush, lingering tannins. This wine will live for at least 10 years in your cellar. Enjoy with roasted rack of spring lamb.

In the Wrattonbully region of South Suatrlia's Limestone Coast, Merlot fruit ripens quite early and is picked when the flavours are most evident. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from the same vineyards are harvested at a range of ripeness levels over two weeks in order to capture a diversity of flavours. The grapes are then fermented in static and rotary fermenters and spend between six to ten days on skins with some static fermenter parcels being given extended maceration. The individual wines are matured in both French and American oak hogsheads for 14 months before final barrel selection for blending.
