Parcels of Reynella and CW44 clones Cabernet Sauvignon are treated to a traditional vinification before being filled to a selection of French oak hogsheads for an extended term of maturation.
Bright scarlet purple colour. The nose combines blackcurrant fruit over subtle oak, complexed by varietal Cabernet capsicum and coffee bean notes.
