The “little brother” to the famous Diana Madeline

Accolades:
93/100 – Huon Hooke, The Real Review

“Medium to deep red/purple colour, good but not deep like the 2015 Diana Madeline. A very appealing, up-front bouquet of mulberry and violets, the palate medium-bodied and supple, with ample tannins but quite accessible already. Very stylish, and ageworthy. I suspect it will richly reward even a modest amount of cellar-time. (84% cabernet sauvignon, 15% merlot. Aged in 22% new oak).” – Huon Hooke, July 2017

Tasting Note: This wine was produced on a certified Biodynamic, Carbon Neutral and naturally powered estate. This outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot from the 2016 vintage displays densely-flavoured ripe dark fruits complemented by discrete fine-grained tannins. Medium-bodied palate with fine tannins, lifted with gentle earthy notes. Lovely ripe plums and cassis showing throughout the finish. 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot. 100% matured in French oak for an average of 17 months, 22% of which were new.
