"Bold and richly textured."
91 POINTS | SARA D'AMATO
Golden Mile Bench
A blend of estate grown Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc from Arise Bench
Matured in a combination of new and used French oak barrels.
Initial investigation into this red blend shows enticing aromas of bright red cherries, cedar, and sweet vanilla. Subsequent random sampling reveals a juicy, full-bodied wine with plum and raspberry, and subtle clove flavours. The persistent finish suggests another glass should be poured. For research, of course.
Wiping the tomato sauce off your date’s cheek as you cook Nonna’s legendary eggplant parmigiana.
