This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Australia's Limestone Coast is made from vineyards grown on shallow red soils overlying hard limestone. The nose shows sweet plum, cherry and strawberry notes on the nose with abundant aniseed aromas reflected on the palate. The bold, fruit driven palate is supported by cedar and vanillin oak characters. The fine silky tannins add to the wine's complexity and long lingering, sweet flavors on the finish.
Vibrant and complex aromas of spicy, red berry fruit, cinnamon and clove spice. The same abundant, vibrant fruit is refl ected on the palate which also shows a hint of licorice, sweet cinnamon spice, and subtle cedary French oak.
Separate parcels of fruit were fermented in American oak barriques and roto fermenters. The wine aged in new and seasoned French and American oak hogsheads.
