|Just dominated by Merlot, this is still a firm wine. Its tannins and acidity are a distinguishing feature at this young stage. They will be joined by the blackberry fruits as the wine matures. It has a good future. Drink from 2023.|

|Warm berry-pastry aromas with mulberries and boysenberries, too. The palate has a long, supple and juicy feel with a wealth of rich berries. Plenty to offer here, this has a plush array of ripe dark fruit, driving the palate long and true. A blend of 50 per cent merlot, 40 per cent cabernet sauvignon and ten per cent cabernet franc.|
