Tasting Notes

Block 2 has the oldest vines on the property, the north-facing slope and gravelly soil sustain the dry-grown vines. A distinguished cabernet with excellent colour, clear varietal definition coming through strongly on both the bouquet and palate, blackcurrant, bay leaf and earth drive through without missing a beat, quality oak and austere cabernet tannins providing the back-palate and emphatic finish. Demands, and will richly repay, extended cellaring. James Halliday
