The tenth vintage of our popular red blend, we are honing down on what the best possible expression of our terroir is. The result is a medium-bodied, fruit-driven wine that is supported by ample tannins and judicious wooding to showcase what cool-climate red wines can be like. Attractive dark cherries & red fruit on the nose with spicy, perfumed notes in the background typify the 2 main grape cultivars (Syrah & Merlot) in this wine. Cabernet Sauvignon imparts some bigger tannins that form the backbone of the wine, while the Malbec enhances the colour and introduces hints of sweet plum. On the palate, the wine enters fruity & voluptuous with a surprising freshness due to its cool climate pedigree. The supportive wooding complements this fruit-forward wine and lends a sérieux to the wine. It finishes off with a lingering finish, balancing mouth-puckering tannins with fruit purity.
