This wine displays a bouquet of perfect balance and proportions: ripe fruit aromas, delicate perfume and fresh spice complemented by French oak. A summer harvest of cherries, berries and plums are joined by fragrant pepper and earth as the wine swirls about the glass. The palate experience is intense, inky and regal. The texture is elegantly poised and the integrated tannins await the late arrival of Tasmania’s trademark acidity. Persistent fruit flavours linger, only to be surpassed by a stylish flourish of Cabernet Franc’s floral characteristics and spice. Drink to 2029.
