Judges Comments A statement of power and concentration. This brilliantly purple hued wine is intensely flavoured with blackcurrants, pepper and nicely toasted oak barrels. The plush and dense fruits create a beautiful core on the mid-palate that releases a bountiful amount of flavour. World class, long finish and long lasting in the cellar.

Judges Comments Defined by complexity, power and lush black fruit flavours. This is a great benchmark wine for the varietal made in the region. The concentrated, dense fruit profile and lovely drive of acidity gives it some magnificent freshness on the finish. It is obvious that this wine is youthful and will be a ticking time bomb of flavour in the years to come.
