Tasting Notes

The nose displays typical fresh cabernet fruit, combining mint and berry characteristics with soft oak in the background. The palate has distinctive fruit flavours, with good acidity and length. The tannin structure is firm but not aggressive or bitter. There is a nice depth overall and the wine drinks well at the moment and is also a good cellaring prospect.

Vintage Notes

The growing season was typically cool, but unusually dry, thus slowing the ripening of the grapes, to produce a wine with more finesse than we have had for several years.

Cellaring Notes

There is a nice depth overall and the wine drinks well at the moment and is also a good cellaring prospect. For example the 1979 is only reaching its peak while the 1981 is still tight and lean, with many years in front of it.
