A blend of noble varieties grown by dedicated Barossa Valley growers, the fruit is sourced from vines aged forty years or more.
I bring these varieties together to achieve complexity of aroma and flavour, with mouthfeel developing soft, silky, velvety tannins.
The ultimate companionship is formed when Cabernet Franc brings fragrant aromatics and red fruits to the party, Cabernet Sauvignon brings herbal leafy blackberry palate length and Merlot says I’ll bring the soft, rich and juicy mid palate fun to the table.
