Regular price $200.00 Sale

    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 seventh 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. The 2018 vintage celebrates the birth of 'Baby Anna Jane,' the third generation of the founding family, and the daughter to this wine's namesake, Samantha. 

    It features brooding aromas of cassis, loganberry, bramble, violets, vanilla bean, clove, cedar, camphor, graphite and high-end oak.
    The palate is supple with blueberry, cranberry, wood sorrel, smoked meats, pink peppercorn and cocoa nib. It has a fine-grooved texture, with rustic yet regal tannins. It is confident, poised, and elegant, with a resounding finish with profound length.
    As a young wine, decanting is highly recommended. This wine is vegan friendly.
