A blend of 68 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon, 18 per cent Cabernet Franc and 14 per cent Merlot, all Barossa Valley sourced, and matured in a mix of American and French oak. The best yet under this label.

Light to medium red-purple; the bouquet is light, with some fragrance in a leafy/minty/earthy spectrum. The palate has a nice core of sweet, redcurrant fruit; the tannins are just a fraction assertive.
