Australian Wine Companion 2018

Ned Goodwin - Published on 01 Aug 2017

This is an even Steven blend of the two Bordeaux varieties, with cabernet gushing blackcurrant; merlot, red to dark plum and leafy red fruits. Dried sage and bouquet garni season the finish. This is a mid-weighted and well proportioned wine. Savoury, elegant and long.
