Cabernet with a bit of horse power under the palate...
"Lifted aromas of black fruits, choc mint and wood spice. Flavours of blackberry and blackcurrant. Choc mint also plays a role. Medium to full bodied but soft through the palate with fine grained tannins and a subtle spice finish to close. McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon from the Home Block, Schuller Rd (Blewitt Springs) hand-picked and Hancock (Chalk Hill Rd closer to McLaren Vale township) machine harvested. Vine age: 20 and 50 years (Home) and 40 years (Hancock). 7 day open ferment with regular pump overs. Basket pressed. 14 months in French and American oak (20% new). Bottled without fining." Winery notes
"It is gorgeously fruited and richly expressed on the nose showing crème de cassis, vanilla, roasted hazelnut and chocolate characters with elegant spicy nuances. The palate delivers excellent fruit power and opulence backed by fine-grained tannins, leading to a lengthy comforting finish. Highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2028." 5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
