The boisterous younger sibling.
From an island known for its long lived reds – this fruit forward blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Franc and Syrah is bursting with energy, and burning the candle at both ends. Matured in French oak, with flavours of red fruit, spice and cassis. Perfectly matched with late nights and loud company.
Produced from fruit grown on our Onetangi Valley estate. Total production 1500 bottles
Allergen info: Contains sulphites.
Early and excellent flowering and fruit set was followed by cool conditions over December. This was followed by a long, warm, Indian summer, enabling the fruit to hang out on the vine producing unusually powerful flavour development for an elegantly lean body.
‘A merlot-dominant blend with cabernet sauvignon, franc and syrah. Rich, smooth-textured red with plum, raspberry, cassis and anise-spice flavours, together with a suggestion of classy oak character. An impressive red offering value at this price’ 03 MAY 2020
