/ Case of 12


This wine is a classic Bordeaux blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot. The fruit was picked and hand-sorted in late April 2022. The two varietal parcels were cold soaked in small fermenters for three days before undergoing a gentle and extended maceration. This approach helped to soften the tannin profile. The wine was then matured in 225L Bordeaux oak barriques, 30% new, with the balance to aged Bordeaux barriques. The wine was matured in these barrels for fourteen months before being prepared for final blending and bottling.


This wine displays bright and lifted aromas of dark berry, cassis and earthiness with gentle oak support. The wine is alluring in its delicacy but also carries serious power. It is both effortlessly mouth filling with juicy red fruit flavours as well as being balanced with acidity and fine-grained tannins which leads to a long finish. The wine has good palate weight and is well suited to food such as red meat dishes or a roast leg of lamb with garlic and herbs. It will improve with further time in bottle.

This is a super, medium bodied wine, with great fruit and impressive length. Accompanying a filet steak was an excellent pairing for my taste.

chose to have this one as a fireside discussion piece... it delivers hands down on its own, superior depth of taste to defy its price point

We had this for a small celebration, it it was smooth after being opened for a few minutes with a bouquet somewhat of berries. Well balanced and full of flavour, this wine is best enjoyed with a meal.

This wine was full bodied in flavour, but smooth on the palate. If you’re wanting an easy drinking wine, that has depth and personality yet isn’t too overpowering this is a wine to try. Thoroughly enjoyed this bottle with friends!

We enjoyed this on the weekend by the fire with my folks. No food required this wine was smooth and easy to drink on its own. A great blend that was so easy to drink we were left wanting more. We’ve updated our club membership to include a few of these 👌

The wine accompanied a pork filet which, despite hesitation that it may be too heavy, was not the case. Deep ruby and with an elegant nose the wine is medium bodied and fruit driven with little tannin or oak evident and shows very good length. For such a young wine it was surprisingly balanced and integrated. Perhaps not a match in the longer term to the previous vintage but still an excellent wine.

Hints of chocolate and spice but is primarily dark fruit driven, particularly on the front palate, but not in an overbearing or bold way. The merlot fills the middle ensuring a generous drink, but for me I found the length lacking and the tannins a little rough, the only things really stopping this from being a stand-out wine. Nonetheless, it represents great value and is one for drinking now or in a year or two.

Berry, with a soft tanin finish and a hint of pepper. Excellent even though not as big as the straight Cabernet Sauvignon but very rich. I would definitely order more and cellar.

Soft nose and the colour is licorice with garnet cascading into a light filled glass with deep purple hues, full flavour on the palate driven by delicious berry and aniseed and a subtle dry and commanding finish, this wine is difficult to stop drinking, delicious

Burgundy in the glass. This is a soft, smooth blend, with mild tannins and a rich berry palate. Mild toast flavours play second fiddle to blueberry, black currant and cherry.

This pairs beautifully with an Italian meal (we had pizza) and is a crowd pleaser. We served lightly chilled on a warm Perth evening.
