PURE GOLD

Reviews

This is an outstanding Bordeaux-style red displaying stunning fruit ripeness together with stylish oak infusion and layers of rich texture. Seductive aromas of cassis, dark plum, blueberry, cedar and cigar lead to a concentrated and impressively weighted palate that is silky and rounded, brilliantly framed by fine, chalky tannins. The wine flows seamlessly to an extremely long finish.

Winemaker's notes

A taunt & brooding blend of red berry fruits (roadside), dark stone fruits (backyard), bramble & the aromas of a dusk sun settling on baked clay hills. Traces of fine powdered tannin flirt with lip & cheek - elegance of people & the land.
