This wine defines charisma! Juicy plum and dark cherry fruits combine with licks of mint and fennel that overlay a slatey-granite earthiness. It’s a deep, dark, dangerously intense cabernet with integrated tannins and dense dark fruits wound up in savoury spice.
Incredible gnarly old vines produce the gorgeous grenache for this wine. It's a luscious GSM that greets the drinker with savoury earthy aromas and floral redcurrant fruit followed by hints of blackberry and gentle spice. You'll never walk alone with this wine!

Elegance and restraint are keys to this wine. A big mouthful of black currant fruits is backed up by careful oak integration that delivers structure and depth. Savoury tannins are harmonious with the ever-present lashings of wild berries, liquorice and hints of leather and cedar.
A rich creaminess sits up front and that briar, spice and darkest berries continue in-line in the palate. Nothing prickly about the tannin structure though; they have benefited from being afforded extra time in oak and sit like gentle grape dust in the mouth.
