About the wine

Smooth, inviting and all yours
  • Last vintage was a roaring success with a HUGE 95% positive rating, it's full bodied, velvety, textured and just delicious!
  • The small berries and thick skins of Cabernet give it, its hallmark high intensity grippy tannins. The Merlot has thinner skin, so less tannin and when blended with Cabernet gives the wine a lovely velvety texture and lifts some of the spicy fruit cake aromas.
  • Full-bodied, but not overbearing this cabernet is well balanced with good length of flavour. This will be THE wine to try!

Best before
The wine is great drinking now; but will feel softer in a year or two and will also develop more savoury flavours for drinkers who like complexity over primary fruit flavours.

Serving advice
16-18C. No need to decant.

Food match
A versatile red which can be enjoyed with a wide range of red meat dishes, and I think an extra treat with roast lamb.
