The Wine

55% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec. Everything is hand picked and sorted by mechanical sorting line, then fermented at a relatively cool temperature to accentuate the aromatics and brightness. The wine spent 20 days on skins, before being moved to French oak barrels, of which 20% are new and then aged for 14 months prior to bottling.

90 points Gary Walsh, The Wine Front 'Medium bodied, juicy and nutty, some tobacco, olive and orange peel bitterness, maybe even some musk stick, balanced acidity, a gentle chew to tannin, with a finish of solid length. Nice. Easy to enjoy.'

92 points Halliday Wine Companion 'A light, bright crimson red. This is a Fontaine Cabernets for pinot lovers with its gentle scents of red fruits, a touch of violet and some cedar that leads onto the light- to medium-bodied and very supple palate. A delicious everyday drinking wine.'
