PURE GOLD

2015 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

Lifted red berry notes are presented with an elegant & lithe presence. Heady & tensioned with a vibrant freshness. Leather, mocha & winter berries are gracefully proportioned.
