Merlot (fruitiness),Petit Verdot (spices) and Cabernet Franc (elegance) , carefully grown on the Misawa Vineyard, are each vinified in small batches, separated by lot and variety until just before bottling, and matured in French oak barrels for 15 months. The grapes are brought to the winery immediately after harvest, where they will undergo a two-stage sort process and spontaneous fermentation. After maturation, the wine is bottled without fining or filtration. The grape variety composition depends on the year’s performance, with no wines produced in years when the weather was not favourable. Grape variety: Cabernet Sauvignon (43%), Merlot (36%), Cabernet Franc (14%), Petit Verdot (7%).

Cigar box, raspberry and red fruit, slip of mint and liquorice, but composed old school claret feel here, with lovely perfume. Delightful feel and regal carriage of flavour, fine grip and grain to tannin, finish is very fine and long too. Absolutely worthy expression of Cabernet.
