A limited production of a selected parcel of Cabernet Sauvignon from our estates single vineyard. The depth of colour depicts the intense rich earthy berry and subtle cedar bouquet of this classic wine. Chocolate sensations delight on the palate, with a soft structure of fruit tannins and subtle spicy oak integration, with a lingering long dry finish.
