Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2012 vintage, The Wine Gang said: this is super-extracted Cabernet with a strong engine oil aroma and is so thick and chocolatey it almost sticks to your palate more than glides over it. Thank goodness for its 10% Merlot, imagine how dense it would be without it... We wouldn't class this as a refined Cabernet Sauvignon, but it delivers on hulking great fruit and is a surefire winner for the barbecue season ahead of us

Of the 2012 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: “I’m amazed that a wine of this calibre from an illustrious estate such as this is so competitively priced. It’s stuffed with classy plum and blackberry fruit, and the lack of oak treatment is a real bonus.”

Regional info

The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes come from the Colchagua Valley renowned for making excellent red wines. In Colchagua, the moderating breezes from the ocean slows ripening allowing the wines to achieve perfect ripeness. Cool nights help retain acidity giving freshness to the wines.
