This wine was produced on a certified Biodynamic, Carbon Neutral and naturally powered estate. This outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot from the 2019 vintage displays densely flavoured ripe dark fruits, complemented by discrete fine-grained tannins.
It was matured in French oak barrels for 6 months, of which 25% were new.
So dense and brooding, concentrated, and yet has a lightness and vigour that makes it so appealing. Black fruit, ripe raspberry, cedar and biscuit spice, dark chocolate and violets, bay leaf, with a sort of wet clay/mineral character in the mix. Tannin is firm and silty/slatey, fresh feel despite all that dark chocolate flavour, and the finish is long, with a black tea perfume trailing. Wonderful.
