REVIEWS

2008 vintage:

"A 33/33/25/9% blend of cabernet sauvignon, malbec, petit verdot and merlot, hand-picked and destemmed in individual batches to small open fermenters then basket pressed to French oak barrels (35% new) for the mlf and 20 months maturation. The colour is still bright, and the complex, full-bodied palate has abundant black fruits, tannins and oak all in measured support. Will be very long lived."
