Winemaker's Notes

Opaque purple in colour, this Estate Cabernet offers assertive youthful aromatics of blackberry, plum and blueberry. Medium-full in body with light tannin and a compact structure, it captures the essence of Maipo Valley fruit.

With time in the glass, this Cabernet unfolds beautifully, suggesting it can be enjoyed in its youth or cellared for 2-4 years.
