Known as the “impossible wine” because of the steepness of the land from which its fruit was grown, presence of underground, rocky seams and outcrops that were thought to be insurmountable. In keeping with the traditional varieties of Bordeaux, this wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
This sixth vintage of our flagship signature red blend epitomises our commitment to honour and reflect the finest examples of the classic Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines upon which our region’s enviable reputation was forged and cemented.
It features brooding restrained fruit characters of blackcurrant, loganberry, bramble, pink peppercorn and sage leaf with complexing savoury elements of clove, cedar, cigar box and high-end oak. Suppleness on the palate combines with a defined ferrous character and flavours of red currants, plum compôte, smoked meats, Szechuan pepper and cocoa nib. The fine-grooved texture winds through rustic yet regal tannins on the poised elegant palate. Flavour and weight abound and push toward a confident and resounding finish with profound length. As a young wine, decanting is highly recommended.
