4 Stars - Sam Kim Wine Orbit
"This is attractively composed and elegantly expressed, showing dark plum, blackcurrant, dried herb, warm spice and cedar characters on the nose, leading to a succulent palate that is gently weighted and supple. The wine offers lovely harmony and spicy nuances, firmly structured by fine, powdery tannins. At its best: now to 2022."


Winery description
Our 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec is made up of 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc and 27% Malbec. The varieties were hand-picked, destemmed and fermented separately in small open topped vats where they were gently hand plunged and pumped over to aid in extracting the maximum amount of flavour and colour from the berries.
