5 stars – Michael Cooper

“The 2012 vintage is very elegant, with a cedary bouquet, deep, ripe blackcurrant, plum, spice and nut flavours, fine-grained tannins, and a lengthy, silky-smooth finish. These are classy wines, worth discovering.” – Michael Cooper

Tasting Notes: 64% Cabernet Franc, 32% Merlot, 4% Malbec. Dark garnet in colour. Intense nose of savoury spices, dried herbs, dark plum and blackberry, with a slightly peppery, meaty, roasted capsicum undertone. Medium-full bodied, with fine, slightly drying tannins and a long silky finish, drawn out by an energetic acid spine. Only 1,782 bottles were produced from the 2012 vintage.
