Grapes: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
Region: New Zealand, Waipara
Tasting Notes: Lovely cassis and spice notes from the Cabernet Sauvignon are filled out with typical plum and mocha notes from the Merlot and given a flourish by the perfume of the Cabernet Franc. In the mouth the wine is medium to full bodied, silky and stylish with sweet plummy, currant like fruit, a savoury umami mid palate underscored by long fine tannins and cedary oak. A wine that will reward cellaring for the next 5-8 years.
