TASTING NOTES: Full bodied and flavourful with still rather tight tannins and a brightly spiced finish. Lots of focus and precision here. There is clearly a lot of effort which goes into this wine from the oak imprint, the density of flavour and the style and shape of the tannins – which are clearly built for the long haul. In terms of extraction, this is a powerful wine and it teeters on the edge of tipping over into muscularity and brawn. Only time will tell but I am a little cautious here and will certainly award this wine a gold medal score on account of its obvious class and grandeur.

Medium green-yellow, silver reflections. White tropical fruit, candied tangerine zest, a hint of pineapple and passion fruit, hints of lime, mineral touch. Juicy, appears light-footed and elegant, pleasant acidity, underscored by minerals, a harmonious, well-developed accompaniment to food.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown


The single-varietal 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon comes barreling out with powerful notes of creme de cassis, plum preserves, and sautéed herbs, leading to hints of dark chocolate, tar, and black olives. The full-bodied palate is densely packed with savory-laced black fruit preserves, supported by firm, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long and lifted.
