About the wine

Tasting notes

Very deep red colour in the glass. This is a typical Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon with loads of dark fruit and dried herbs on the nose, with hints of dark peppermint chocolate. The palate is full of soft dark fruits and tight tannins which indicates that this wine has a long life ahead.
