A blend of 61% cabernet sauvignon & 39% shiraz
Review by Campbell Mattinson - The Wine Front
96 POINTS/DRINK 2033 - JAMES HALLIDAY
Estate-grown SA125 clone, two batches destemmed and crushed, open-fermented, 30 days on skins, matured for 18 months in one new and one 1yo French barrique, bottled Jan '15, 33 dozen made. Bright crimson-purple; a powerful, autocratic cabernet making it clear you take it on its terms or not at all. Powerful blackcurrant fruit has a crown of tannins and bay leaves, cedary French oak also playing an important role.
