The combination of old vines, relatively cool climate and unique Terra rossa soils underneath the Hollick vineyard produce intense Cabernet and Merlot fruit, the grapes showing good ripeness, excellent colours and a soft tannin profile. The long and cool, dry growing seasons that prevail in the cigar shaped Coonawarra provide the ideal conditions for grapes to accumulate intense flavours and fine tannins. Following the harvest, bunches are minimally handled to retain the intense fruit flavours of the vineyard. Partial barrel fermentation, followed by eighteen months maturation in a combination of French and American oak barrels, infuses elegance, structure and a long finish to the stately palate.
Bright ruby red with purple hues. Varietal Cabernet aromas of blackcurrant and mulberry are complimented by the softer Merlot notes of violet, dark chocolates and plum. A seamless and complex Coonawarra, showing blackberry and cassis, choc mint and plums woven with finely integrated oak. The finish is long with a soft texture and silky tannin structure. A fabulous wine to accompany roast lamb and crisp rosemary potato.
