“My Great Grandfather Joseph Cilento immigrated to Australia in the late 1800’s and with my love of Italy, its wines, food and culture with the fond memories of many vintages working there, I offer this tribute to my Italian heritage.” – Geoff Merrill
The colour is a rich dark red with blood red hues. The aroma is a savoury blend of black cherry, herbs and spice, meaty notes and a hint of caper.
The palate is strong and muscular with fleshy ripe fruits, grippy sinuous tannins, and a well proportioned mid palate finishing with balanced acidity and length.
