Reviews & Awards:
94 points - Halliday Wine Companion – Outstanding & awarded Special Value Rating
“Individual blocks from estate vineyards fermented and matured for 18 months in French oak (17% new) before blending. Clear varietal character on both bouquet and palate is immediately established, cassis to the fore. The tannins have been polished, and oak was never going to be an issue. A medium-bodied cabernet offering each way drinking - now or later.” James Halliday
