Pale to mid straw with a bright green tinge.
Abundant aromas of stonefruit and rockmelon and hints of shortbread yeast characters
An intensely up-front flavoured wine with ripe stonefruit, honeydew and rockmelon with fresh apple pie and shortbread notes from time spent maturing on yeast lees post-fermentation coming through on the middle palate. The finish is long, well balanced and gives an excellent clean lasting length.

This wine has been crafted utilising fruit sourced from three separate blocks on the estate: Blocks 3 and 4 of premium 25-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon vines; and Block 5 Merlot planted in 1987. A small amount of Cabernet and Malbec from the neighbouring property of Abbey Vale features in the 2014 blend.
All of the constituent vineyard parcels were fermented separately for this wine using a variety of techniques. These wines were matured for 18 months in 30% new and 70% seasoned French oak barriques.
