"The most accomplished, distinguished and relished"
93 POINTS | MICHAEL GODEL
An estate grown blend of Merlot (38%), Cabernet Franc (36%), and Cabernet Sauvignon (26%) from Arise Bench.
Matured for 16 months in a combination of new (60%) and 1-year old (40%) French oak barrels.
Opulent cassis and freshly picked blackberry aromas are complemented by violets, cedar, and a pronounced minerality. The densely textured, savoury palate has lively acidity, succulent dark fruits, and polished, refined tannins. Combining generosity with elegance, the finish is long and persistent.
Roasted pheasant with chestnut fennel friçassée.
