Tasting Notes


The 2016 vintage is extremely dense and dark. The nose is captivating with an initial abundance of dark fruits followed by the spicy, peppery and violet tones more typical of our vineyard. The palate is rich and decadent with a full body and great acidity. The tannins are noticeable, but fine grained creating a wonderfully smooth finish and structure.

Winemaker's Notes


Fruit for this cabernet franc comes from the 7 acre 'Bordeaux block' at the back end of the estate, planted in Nasom series soil which is very rocky, creating excellent conditions for growing superb berries. After being hand-picked and hand-sorted, the fruit was de-stemmed and transferred to small lot fermentation units. The majority of the lots were fermented naturally as is typical of our reserves. During the course of fermentation stems were added to the units and the wine was punched down six times daily.
