An extremely refined and elegant wine...It shines with its length, finish and aftertaste.

Juicy black fruits, fresh and plump plum, blackberry - hints at the grandeur to come.

Issue 191

Deep garnet-purple coloured, this wine reveals wonderfully expressive Cabernet aromas of warm cassis, mocha, smoked duck, anise, cardamom, cinnamon stick and freshly tilled loam. Crisp, medium bodied, intense and tight-knit, this is a relatively soft textured vintage with just above a medium level of very fine tannins.

Pretty raspberry and green tea flavours, finishing with a nip of tannins. This has elegance and grace, finishing with persistence .

Red fruits, spice, briar and violet aromas: this is a wine with lots of detail. It's clean, concentrated and elegant, with a long finish and ample, persistent tannins that run the length of the palate.
