  • 2015 Dessert Cabernet

    Dense and brooding notes of black plum and cassis.  Coal dust, ground metal and wet earth evoke suggestions of strength and power.  The palate delivers on all counts with notes of liquorice, plum jam and heady spirit.  The finish is sweet and soft but held together by a tannin matrix which allows the wine to keep its freshness.

  • 2015 Syrah

    Vibrant blue purple colour.  Snappy aromatic characters of crushed rosemary, violet and a savoury toasty complexity.  The delicate perfume on the nose is in part due to a small percentage of viognier (2.5%) in the blend.  The palate is mid weight with a bright fresh acid structure and supple tannin.  Enjoy now as a red wine match to spicy and aromatic dishes such as Moroccan lamb.
