Is this the best wine I've had from the Orange district? You betcha! It's the type of wine you peruse slowly yet the bottle is drained in no time. I could not resist going back again and again.
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and a drop of Petit Verdot (75/17/7/1).
Attractive scents of violets, coffee, cedar, dark chocolate and handfuls of roasted capsicum all lurch forward for your attention. There's a bristling energy about this blend with hazelnuts, blueberry pie and earthy tones creeping into the frame. Loaded with fruit, time in the glass sees a savoury side of leather and cigar box ride stepping up. Oak is well managed with a silky smooth delivery through the mouth. Licks of spice add further interest on a long and moreish finish. A really impressive wine!
