Country: Australia, Margaret River
Tasting Notes: Very deep brick red hue; bright condition. Excellent combination of red and black fruits – red currants, mulberries, black berries and plums. Despite the presence of all this fruit there is a background of spice, leather and even musk. Straight away there is a spread of mulberry and blueberry fruit flavour, long round and generous, so much so that the tannins sit quietly underneath, waiting for the aging process to reveal them. The vintage was such that we didn’t make very much of this wine but boy, it’s a gem. The best we’ve made, by some margin.
Varietal: Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot
