This property has been run passionately by the Kressman family for 3 generations, having seen recent expansion and investment, with restructuring of the vineyards, to ensure that the Cabernets are on the most appropriate terroirs for them, the Merlots also. The 2019 assemblage consists of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot with 8% Petit Verdot. The latter grape has been contributing significantly more to the blend in recent years. In a ripe vintage such as this, it brings colour, piercing fruitiness, and a refreshing curl of extra flavour to the finish. The 2019 is very deep, dense purple in colour, with beautifully fragrant cassis and black fruit aromas. Palate starts tautly structured, with flowing, intense, lifted mid-palate, showing superb balance of alcohol, freshness and rich tannins. This is a lovely, thirst-quenching wine, capable of long-term ageing, with admirable length (for drinking 2025-2040+).
