“The best barrels of the vintage are selected for our Reserve range and given additional maturation in oak prior to bottling and cellaring.” – Geoff Merrill
The colour is a very dark blood red with great depth. The aroma doesn’t wait, it comes out to greet you with a wonderful array of mint, menthol, herbs and spice, earth, black currant, cooked beetroot and violet perfume.
The palate has great fruit intensity wrapped up in firm, ripe, youthful tannins and strengthened by decisive acidity so well balanced it almost disappears. A great Cabernet vintage that will continue to grow in depth and complexity for many years.
