This wine is a blend of 52% Cabernet Franc, 43% Merlot, and 5% Malbec that has spent 10 months maturing in one, two and three year old French barrels.

Intense crimson in colour, the nose is bright and aromatic showing an array of red berry fruits. The palate is playful and energetic, with lovely lifted primary Cabernet Franc characters of briar patch and raspberry combining with blackcurrant from the Merlot and a touch of white spice from the Malbec. The finish is fine, with bright acidity and vibrancy.
