Tasting Notes

An exciting new world style wine with upfront blackcurrant flavours. The black fruit is well-balanced with subtle French oak for a complex nose and an elegant and lingering follow-through. An exceptional example of a lighter style Cabernet Sauvignon that can be enjoyed while still young.


Ageing Potential

Ready to drink, but will benefit from another year in the bottle.


Blend Information

100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Food Suggestions

Served at room temperature, this Cabernet Sauvignon pairs perfectly with red meat dishes, especially classic recipes like roasted leg of lam, grilled lamb chops and beef kebabs. While ready to drink, it would benefit from another year in the bottle.
