A 51/49% co-fermented blend, open-fermented in concrete vats; half pressed to new French hogsheads to complete fermentation, the remainder to used hogsheads; 2 more years in oak. Mulberry, blackcurrant and Coonawarra mint flavours fill the medium-bodied palate, the tannins soft, the oak integrated.Drink by 2025
Two years in French oak. Bottled in mid-2011. Only 450 dozen produced. Good insight into mature Cooonawarra Cabernet. Five years old but it’s already found itself in a good drinking spot. It tastes off leather, mulberry, toasty oak, game and tobacco. It’s juicy but firm, medium-bodied and opens up attractively as it rests in the glass.2014 - 2020
This blend is greater than its elements. The red fruit is lifted carrying the flavours and getting more merlot fruits.2013Rob Geddes MW

Nose: A complex bouquet exhibits violets, cassis, plums and vanilla oak overtones.
Palate: The full-bodied palate shows rich, ripe fruit with velvety tannins. The flavours carry through to a long dry finish.
