The 2010 vintage was excellent for our Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the Gimblett Gravels. Low vine yields combined with moderate temperatures and dry conditions through the late season, which led to prolonged ripening and the development of intense colours and flavours in the resulting wines. After carefully selecting out fruit from the lowest vigour zones within our vineyards, only the finest barriques from our cellar were then blended for this wine. The wine is displaying complex aromas of black and red fruits, potpourri, cassis and complex dried herbs, while the palate is complemented by fine tannins and a long, elegant finish.
