"The aromas mingle spice, oak, cassis and cherry. The palate delivers layers of dark fruit. The finish is long and harmonious."
94 Points ~ John Schreiner
Golden Mile Bench
An estate grown blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (43%), Merlot (21%), Cabernet Franc (20%), Malbec (10%) and Petit Verdot (6%) from Arise Bench.
Matured for 16 months in a combination of new (31%), 1-year-old (20%), and neutral (49%) French oak barrels.
Black cherry aromatics are complimented by savoury sage and eucalyptus notes. The rich and complex palate showcases wild red fruit layered with cloves and warming spices with hints of black currant. The finely structured tannins and elegant acidity carry the fruit through a long, refined finish.
