Made with 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, this St Emilion blend pours with a beautiful garnet red colour. On the nose, intense aromas of ripe and concentrated forest fruits leap from the glass. On the palate, it is medium to full bodied with flavours of black cherries and chocolate alongside graceful notes of liquorice and eucalyptus. The tannins are soft and round and there is a wonderfully dry and clean finish.
