Tasting Notes

Sourced from a single vineyard since 2005, so no longer merely a second wine, it has achieved new levels of expression in the 2010 vintage. Very ripe and enticing on the nose, it has layers of sweet plum and cassis aromas. On the palate, luscious sweet blackcurrant fruit with exotic spices are balanced by refined, integrated tannins. This is a wonderfully smooth, textured and harmonious wine. Drink 2015 - 2025.

Reviews & Scores

Coming from a totally separate vineyard, this blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot sports a dramatic label designed by Jade Jagger, the daughter of rock legend Mick. The wine is richly fruity, lush, fleshy, very flamboyant, and seems to have more in common with the 2009 vintage than the more structured, backward and restrained 2010s. The wine is medium to full-bodied, luscious and best drunk over the next 10-15 years.
