Product Code: AUHTH686

Availability: In stock



Country: Australia, Margaret River

Tasting Notes: Deep dark garnet with black plum edges. The aromatics are deep and complex consisting of a mineral blackcurrant core with touches of anise, bay leaves and dark chocolate. Rich elements of rosemary, spearmint and moist forest floor reveal themselves as the tightly wound profile gently unfurls.The palate has a powerful rush of cocoa powder, with dark forest berry fruits of blackcurrant and mulberry, peppered with notes of spiced ginger and caramel toffee. The seamlessly integrated palate of powdery tannins frame the perfectly weighted earthiness and fruit, giving a long texture that harks of the saline coastal influence.

Varietal: Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon 90%, Petit Verdot 5%, Merlot 5%.

Pairing: The subtle complexity of this wine complements a five spice dusted crispy duck breast served over soba noodles, a hoisin glazed charcoal grilled ribeye, served with blistered potatoes and minted peas or a spicy Moroccan vegetable tagine of root vegetables, eggplant and zucchini. The savoury earth elements will be lifted by a simple dish of fresh buttered pappardelle with shaved black truffles.
