"Matured in 42% new and 58% seasoned French hogsheads for 18 months prior to blending and bottling.
Deep crimson in colour. Fragrant aromas of black currant, cassis, dark plum and blue and black berry fruits. Floral violet nuances, and enticing notes of bramble, dried herbs and spice are layered with just a hint of cedar and graphite complexity. The palate is focussed and lush, with wild blue, black and red berry fruit flavours complemented by layers of dried herbs, spice, vanilla and cedar. An elegant thread of acidity and fine rolling tannins provide structure and poise. Cabernet from the Eden Valley has its own cool personality – and absolute authority." - James Halliday
