This classic blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of ripe redcurrant, cassis and a hint of savoury spice. On the palate, its seductive fruit flavours are wrapped around a core of fresh acidity and firm – yet perfectly integrated –
The Cabernet Sauvignon delivers dark fruit and spicy notes, in a style that is fruit-forward and crowd-pleasing. Soft tannins and a splash of fresh acidity make this a versatile wine for entertaining.
Ruby color, medium body. Balsamic nose of rapsberries, sour cherry, pepper, hints of spices. On finish all is balanced except strong tannins.
Mixed berry bouquet, soft candy and hint of spice. Palate is medium to full bodied with more berries. Good structure, fresh tannins.
Dark fruits, earth, oak and grippy for sure. Long finish that does not disappoint. Lovely!
